ACTIVIST Frank Gashumba reckons Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine betrayed his supporters by missing yesterday (Monday) action packed parliament session.


Bobi Wine is currently in the US where he had gone to attend a conference organized by The Bill Gates Foundation.

In parliament the highly anticipated Age Limit bill was expected to be tabled before parliament.

Now Gashumba believes missing such a session by Bobi is betrayal.


He wrote: “I actively participated in your campaigns and if you can vividly remember, one of the things I emphasized to you was that you should never betray your voters and your country.


The day you were sworn in, thousands of your supporters escorted you to Parliament.

Today, when the most controversial and quite stupid bill was supposed to be tabled in Parliament, you were no where to be seen.

Even Hon. Micheal Kabaziguruka, Who was sick  managed to make it to the house,  arriving

on a stretcher to defend, preserve and protect the constitution.


Today was a crucial day in the history of Ugandans and the thousands of people who voted for you and trusted in you.  I am reliably informed that you are in New York doing God knows what.

Had to believe that even our chief Comedian Kato Lubwama was present and you were not. Why did you dessert your constituency and it’s people when we needed you the most?


Just to remind you, President Museveni has never skipped attending a by-election rally for an NRM aspirant.

If today, there was a vote In Parliament and it only lacked one vote, we would have lost. Not because of NRM, but because of you people that we supported most but let us down.

In the civil society where I belong, all leaders, NRM, DP, FDC etc are subject to scrutiny. Honorable Kyagulanyi Robert aka Bobi Wine. Please explain to us why you were absent.


I believe you owe it to us. We did believe and trust you with our votes and undying support.”
