National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has urged his supporters to reject tribalism, further claiming that his opponent President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni thrives on the vice.

Bobi Wine, a singer-turned-politician, came second in the January 14, 2021, presidential election that was won by Museveni of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).

The former Kyadondo East MP’s NUP party won almost all of its parliamentary seats from the Buganda sub-region.

In the same sub-region from where Bobi Wine hails, the youthful politician beat Museveni in most of the districts.

In reaction to the loss in Bobi’s Buganda region, Museveni claimed that he an his NRM had lost because NUP and its leader had allegedly rigged him out and also championed sectarianism. (Read story here).

But Bobi, NUP and Buganda dismissed Museveni’s allegations, wondering if he was also sectarian since he had won massively in his home Ankole (Nkore) sub-region.

The debates on tribalism have raged on, often playing out in social and mainstream media debates.

Bobi Wine says tribalism is a cancer that the 77-year-old president seeks to benefit from. The NUP leader has now called for the rejection of tribalism.

“It’s important to note that tribalism is a cancer. A cancer that Museveni intends to use,” he said at NUP head offices in Kamwokya in Kampala on January 18.

“I continue to appeal to us to dismiss Museveni’s tribalism with the contempt it deserves. We are a united generation.”

Recently, Bobi Wine told Museveni Baganda would not have supported his war if they were champions of tribalism. (Read story here).
