Abiriga Murder: Bobi Wine Wants Honest Conversation with Museveni Over ‘State Breakdown’
Bobi Wine: State Breakdown Spares None
Musician and Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine says the shooting of Arua Municipality legislator Ibrahim Abiriga is a sign of state breakdown and there should be an honest discussion of saving the country.
Abiriga was assassinated at 6:45pm on Friday by yet-to-be-identified assailants.
He was slain with his brother and body guard Said Kongo.
In a social media statement, Bobi Wine said the murder of Abiriga and his bodyguard was “yet another sad reminder that our country is in a very serious crisis”.
“When we condemn the breakdown of the state in Uganda, some people think it’s for political reasons,” noted Bobi Wine.
“As we can see, This state breakdown spares no one. It affects all of us regardless of our political parties or status.”
Bobi Wine has now called for efforts to stop the country’s security situation from deteriorating.
“Our nation is gradually descending into a very bad place and we must all- as stakeholders, have a role in preventing this from continuing or worsening,” he further said.
He has called for dialogue with government on how to find ways of getting out of the current security crisis.
“I appeal to gov’t to acknowledge that we have reached a point when we must have an honest conversation as a nation and find a solution to this crisis,” the MP pleaded.
“No matter who we are and our political affiliations, no Ugandan should lose his or her life in this gruesome manner.”
