Bobi Wine Breaks Silence, Responds To Mockers

The Kyadondo East Member of parliament Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has finally broken silence over the viral video and mockery from the public.
In a few words, Bobi Wine argued people to stay focused because there is still work to be done and it doesn’t help to criticize those at the front line.
“Ultimately, we have some work cut out for us. If we do not want to rise to the occasion and save our nation, let us be slow in criticizing those who are sacrificing everything, including potentially their life, to do that work,” he posted on his facebook page.
Bobi Wine, humbly requested the intellectuals to guide and advise, without beating the freedom fighters down!
Last evening, during an interview where he was hosted on NTV chaired by Patrick Kamara, Bobi Wine made a number of blunders while answering a few serious questions, causing a certain video clip to go viral.
When kamara asked the ‘Kyarenga’ singer what kind of fiscal tools he would use to stop inflation, the singer replied that he would deal away with it, through stopping impunity and OTT Tax.

Several people including Gagamel boss Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool, political analyst Andrew Mwenda, opposition cyber die hard Okwalinga Tom Voltaire among others, came out to ridicule the singer for his lack of knowledge about the country’s economy.
Andrew Mwenda wrote on twitter, ” This is the real tragedy of African elites. They continually complain that the problem of Africa is bad leaders. Yet when given a chance to select leaders they chose ignorant and idiotic characters.”
To these comments, Bobi Wine wrote a lengthy food for thought quote dedicating it to a section of intellectual class and it read;
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt.
