President Yoweri Museveni shakes hands with Bobi Wine.

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine did not waste any time to respond to President Museveni's missive that he released yesterday.

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...
