Museveni: I Have Juicy Jobs for Bobi Wine, Besigye if they Agree to Work with Me

‘No Problem Working with Bobi Wine, Besigye’

Besigye, Museveni and Bobi Wine

Ugandan President Gen (Rtd) Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni says he is ready to offer juicy jobs and to work with opposition leaders Dr Kizza Besigye and Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Museveni has been in power since 1986 when he took over following a five-year bush war that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, mostly in the Luweero Triangle area.

During that bush war, Dr Besigye left his job in a Kenyan hospital to join the struggle in the jungles of Luweero. He would become the Museveni’s personal physician whose job description also meant he had to treat other fighters injured on the frontline.

After the war, Besigye would serve as a minister and as a leader in the president’s party before he fell out with Museveni and joined opposition politics. For four presidential elections in a row – spanning two decades – Besigye challenged Museveni at the ballot, albeit unsuccessfully. He blamed vote rigging.

With Besigye opting out of the 2021 election, popstar Bobi Wine emerged on the political scene. His National Unity Platform (NUP) eclipsed Besigye’s Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) as the main opposition party. But he lost to Museveni although his NUP party claimed he had won with over 52 per cent.

After the election, Museveni offered one of the 2021 presidential candidates and Democratic Party (DP) leader, Norbert Mao, a job as Minister of Justice and Constitutional Minister after the two signed an agreement to work together.


And Museveni wants more: Besigye and Bobi Wine, the main opposition leaders.

Museveni says he is ready to offer Besigye and Bobi Wine jobs the way he did to Mao.

“No problem [giving Bobi Wine and Besigye jobs and working with them]. I was working with [Paul Kawanga] Ssemogerere 1996. He is the one who left us,” Museveni told the BBC.

But Bobi Wine and Besigye have previously set conditions for meeting Museveni and having talks with him. (See Details Here and There).
