Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine did not waste any time to respond to President Museveni's missive that he released yesterday.
In what is turning out to be a generational difference of ideas on how the country should be run between a 35-year-old MP and a 73-year-old president, Kyagulanyi has hit back at the president for releasing a statement "full of errors" including getting his constituency wrong. This, Kyagulanyi says symbolises the current mistakes and failures of Museveni's government.
Below is Bobi Wine's response (unabridged)
I have read President Yoweri Museveni's response to my recent statements and audio recording on the state of our Nation.
The statement contains many errors - factual and in terms conclusions (the obvious one being that am an MP for Kyadondo East NOT KYADONDO NORTH), (which actually symbolises the mistakes and failures in the governance of our country)
Nonetheless, I thank you Mr. President for taking time to respond. I wish we would at all times engage intellectually and in a civil manner - other than the state resorting to the use of force, violence and other machinations.
An article should be responded to with an article and not with an arrest or intimidation.
I will respond to the other mistakes, inconsistencies, contradictions and wrong conclusions at an appropriate time- actually, WE AS A GENERATION shall respond, because I don't speak for myself but for millions of Ugandans, young and oldmen, women and children, who want nothing but a better Country for themselves, their children and the generations to come.
Let's now get into the market of ideas...
