Bobi Wine

Treason case stops Ugandan MP Bobi Wine’s UK travel

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, on Monday aborted his planned travel to United Kingdom (UK) to attend a parliamentary session debating the rule of law in Uganda.
Musician turned politician, Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi commonly known as "Bobi wine" (C) waves to his supporters in a suburb of Kampala on June 29, 2017. For the last decade Ugandans have known two presidents: Yoweri Museveni, the country's long-time ruler, and musician Robert Kyagulanyi a.k.a. Bobi Wine, a.k.a. His Excellency the Ghetto President. But in a surprising turn the 35-year-old reggae star -- who was just three when Museveni took power at the head of a rebel army -- on June 29, won a landslide victory in a city by-election to become the country's newest lawmaker.
