Audio: Ronald Mayinja Blasts Museveni in New ‘Bizzemu’ Song
Mayinja uses just over four minutes to sting Museveni for allowing what he fought three decades ago to re-occur.
He also clears the air on why he had gone to Kiboga where he was pictured shaking hands with Museveni.
BIZZEMU: LYRICS OF RONALD MAYINJA SONG TO MUSEVENI
In the 1980s Mzee [Museveni] took up arms
Against what ailed this nation
Which included bad governance and murders very rampant were the murders.
tribalism and vote rigging; Highway robberies and arbitrary arrests;
People in power misusing their weapons; Mzee went to the bush to fight these
But now, all these have returned; what he fought has resurfaced
Go tell Mzee that these ills have returned x 2
Among the things that made mzee fight was poverty, yet now money has lost all value
Arcade owners want their rent in US Dollars, because the local currency keeps losing value
People run away from their homes to go die at home, because of high hospital bills.
Yet the Late so-and-so [Mayinja could have meant Mowzey Radio] had a huge bill
But they said he had sung for Museveni and they paid his bill
It’s now about ‘know-who’ — no more universal benefits.
And woe unto us the artists.
Even Panda Gari [bloody and torturous arrests and killings] is back, I am scared
Because the opposition people are now netted like mud fish
And when you delay to send it they behead them
Testifying for a person whose land has been grabbed now makes you a thief
That you are sabotaging the big people’s efforts to develop this nation
They said i was foolish, a duck walk
Let him hurt us, he will get tired and quit. We just reported him to God
So when they stopped me, I decided to send this message.
Chorus up to the end
