Stellah Nyanzi: Congratulations Honourable Kyagulanyi Ssetamu Robert, His Excellency Ghetto President Bobi Wine, Omubanda wa Kabaka, dis bad man from Kamwokya.
Even before the final results are out, I am already celebrating the great win of a comrade in the struggle against misrule in Uganda. This win matters to me because it signals a fresh wave in the psyche of Ugandan voters opposed to the current system of political organizing.
Bobi Wine’s landslide victory reveals that one can win at the ballot in Uganda without relying on any political party affiliation. The form of organizing we need to dismantle the Museveniocracy must unite voters beyond unity forged through political partying. We need more Bobi Wines to redo this strategy en mass!
