For the first time in almost a year, National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine is leaving the country to yet to be identified countries on the African continent.
According to NUP Spokesperson and Nakawa West MP-elect Joel Ssenyonyi, Bobi Wine is embarking on a four-day official working visit where he will meet several leaders and fellow strugglers on the African continent.
Ssenyonyi says that the visit is in furtherance of the party’s struggle for freedom and democracy.

Bobi Wine, who ran against the incumbent President Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni in the January 14 presidential election and dismissed the results announced by the Electoral Commission (EC) that declared him first runner-up, has had his movement and other activities restrained by security officials.
The security officials claim that Bobi Wines activities are intended to disrupt the peace and stability of the country, although he has always said that his activities, which include protests, are peaceful and non-violent.
President Museveni and some government officials have continually said that Bobi Wine is working with foreigners with the sole aim of removing the ruling government.
