Former Rubaga south Member of Parliament Hon Kato Lubwama has responded to Robert Kyagulanyi’s alias Bobi Wine comments over Gen Saleh’s cash to artists.
Kato Lubwama alleges that Bobi wine is actually the champion of beggars and advised him to stick to NUP and leave UMA issues to artists and that he should send his advises to NUP Mps he commands but he is not president or co-ordinator for artist while appearing to spark Tv’s live wire.
Since last week, several musicians have attended meetings in Gulu with Gen Saleh in a bid to get assistance in form of money to the music industry which has been hit badly by the Covid-19 induced lockdown.
However, on Thursday, Bobi Wine launched an attack on the artistes who accepted the money accusing them of selling out their souls for handouts and lowering them to beggars.
“I know that all these artists are aware that the entire objective is to silence not just individual artistes but to water down the entire music and creative industry so that it never produces another ‘Kyagulanyi’ kind of artist that speaks truth to its face,” Kyagulanyi posted on his social media accounts.
According to the artiste cum politician, the objective of the money is to cause a rift among the artistes and President Museveni coming out as the outright winner.
“No wonder, several artistes are already up in arms questioning the methods and criteria used to select beneficiaries of the few monies dished out every once in a while. Moreover tax payers’ money.”
