We made documentary film to expose 'dictator' Museveni - Bobi Wine

The President of the National Unity Platform (NUP), Robert Kyagulanyi, better known as Bobi Wine, says he is using film to expose the excesses of President Yoweri Museveni’s regime.

Kyagulanyi, currently taking part in the 79th World Film Festival in Venice, Italy, for the premiere of his documentary “Bobi Wine: Ghetto President”, says film will reveal to the international community the injustices of Museveni’s reign.

For the last 5 years, our struggle has been captured on camera and a documentary film was made to show to the world the true picture of what is happening in Uganda. I am humbled that this film was selected to be among the top 20 films in the world to grace this festival,” he said.

The documentary chronicles Kyagulanyi’s rise from the dark urban underbelly of Kamwokya, a Kampala suburb girdled by a slum in which he grew up, to first become a musical star and then a political phenomenon with international appeal.

“I want the people in the international community to know that somewhere in the world, somewhere in Africa, in a country called Uganda, people are being massacred for what they think,” he said.

Kyagulanyi’s message revolves around the international community being complicit in the Museveni dictatorship by providing aid to Uganda which is subsequently used to violate human rights and undermine democracy in the country.

The documentary also charts the course of Kyagulanyi’s grassroots political campaign in 2017 up to 2021, when he unsuccessfully ran against Museveni in the presidential elections.

The documentary also highlights how, for two decades, Kyagulanyi has used his music to address social justice and pitch for reform in the country.
