President Yoweri Museveni reportedly gave musician Bebe Cool Shs1 billion cash, with a promise of a further Shs1 billion, to help crash Bobi Wine, and popularise the NRM ideology.

Bebe Cool, Museveni believes, is the man to spearhead the fight against fast rising People Power crusader Bobi Wine.
In fact, Museveni has already succeeded in making it a Bobi/Bebe contest, not Bobi against Museveni.

According to our trusted sources, Bebe Cool received the money shortly before he travelled to the United States of America on holiday, in late August last year (2018).
He spent close to three months in the States, only leaving for Accra Ghana where he received an AFRIMA award before flying back to America.
This was weeks after Bebe visited Museveni in Rwakitura. He was in the company of fellow singer Catherine Kusasira among others.
Upon his return, the singer held a press conference at Torino Bar in Kampala and briefed journalists on the progress of his charity works.
And since then the talented musician has been involved in various charity works including donating items worth millions to Kiruddu Hospital.
While many defiant and extremist youths have always dismissed Cool’s charity works, its is believed by Museveni’s handlers that such good PR gives Cool support among the torelant youths and some ‘angry’ ones.

And the president’s handlers believe this group of youthful Kampalans is big. And rightly so.
This, therefore, will provide a hospitable environment for Bebe to push the Museveni 2021 agenda.
It has also been argued that his (Bebe) recent reconciliation gesture with Bobi Wine will help tame the anger many youths have towards him.
