Kampala: Singer Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool has finally bowed down and apologized to Ugandans and grieved families of those people who died and injured in yesterday’s protests following his bragging post claiming how he and the government are ready to crush down opposition’s Plan B.
“I would like to apologize for the post I made yesterday that made me appear insensitive towards the families of the innocent Ugandans that lost their lives in the riots that took place yesterday,” he said.
Bebe Cool, who has also been holding rallies says that he carried out processions to prove that NRM still had support in Uganda leaving questions on Ugandans’ hearts whether his negligence is not likely to spread COVID-19.
“My candidate President Yoweri Museveni who I have supported and still have hope in is following the guidelines 100%. I on the other hand have been holding processions while distributing face masks and t-shirts. Our opponents started with processions and later switched to mass campaign rallies in open fields without regard to the set EC guidelines and even started holding music concerts which are still prohibited during these covid times,” he posted on his Facebook page.
He also revealed that by holding processions, he was preventing future chaos arising from opposition.
“If I had let our opponents to go on unchallenged, there was a possibility of them causing chaos after election loss claiming th election had been rigged simply because they had crowds and we had gone scientific in order to adhere to the EC guidelines,” he said.
He however noted that it’s the role of the Uganda police to ensure enforcement of the set guidelines. He further regrets what happened yesterday during the protests.
“What happened yesterday is regrettable and am saddened by the loss of life and property that we all saw. I condole with the families of all those that lost or got a loved one injured in the violence that took place yesterday. We shouldn’t accept or associate with acts of violence especially because of our political affiliation,” he said.
Currently Bobi remains under detention for apparently violating the Electoral Commission guidelines. Earlier today morning, Kawempe North constituency Member Of Parliament aspirant, Muhammad Ssegirinya has been arrested too by plain clothed security operatives.
