'You’ll miss me when I’m gone,' says Bobi Wine as politics crumbles around him

Driving through the streets of the Netherlands on Friday evening, Bobi Wine got emotional and broke into a rendition of a popular Jose Chameleone song.

The song, Basiima Ogenze is a tribute to the unsung heroes of the world.

Released about two decades ago, the song title which translates as “people only appreciate your good actions after you have passed” became a popular phrase in the country.

In the car, travelling along with his party Secretary General David Lewis Rubongoya, Bobi Wine crooned along the entire song pausing sporadically to reflect on the heavy message in the song.

The opposition leader posted the video on social media with a message inferring how he feels unappreciated:

The ride from Brussels to Amsterdam this afternoon got me thinking things about life, as we jammed to Jose Chameleon’s #BasiimaOgenze,” he posted

The best thing a man should do is try to do good and improve the lives of others without expecting anything in return (because it will not come in your lifetime).

The beauty is that, when they finally understand you, even when you’re long gone, it will make you live on.”

Over the past month, Bobi Wine has seen the world of politics seemingly collapse around him as the grip on his own political party loosened by the day.

The NUP President is facing a brewing insurrection inside his party since he severed ties with his vice president and former Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Hon Mathias Mpuuga.

Bobi Wine accused Mpuuga of soliciting a Shs 500 payment from the Parliamentary Commission.

Mpuuga and a few party leaders, however, claimed he was being scapegoated because of his firm stance against the LBTQ agenda.

The group claims Bobi Wine has allowed the leading opposition party to be controlled by foreign groups whose primary interest is pushing for the rights of sexual minorities.
