National Unity Platform boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has been in the past week been drawn in a mix of controversies following his recent trip to London where he had not been for the last 10 years despite frequenting several European countries and the US since rising to political fame.

The Ghetto gladiator had been handed a lifetime ban from entering the UK 10 years ago following his negative stance on the LGBTQ community also known as gay or homosexuals. The Lion from Magere composed lyrics in 2013 which were calling upon communities to shoot and kill the homosexuals. These lyrics were perceived homophobic by the western world especially the UK which reacted by banning Bobi Wine from traveling to the UK.


However, in a turn of events the UK rescinded this ban and allowed the NUP boss to land in London. While there he had several engagements with his party supporters and fans. He also on the side lines of his visit had an interview with the BBC which turned out to be a matter of scrutiny and criticism.

During the interview Bobi Wine when asked if he regrets composing the lyrics which castigated the Homosexuals, he answered in the affirmative before lashing out at president Museveni for introducing the Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023 which he says was brought in bad faith to target the opposition especially himself.

The NUP principal had even forgotten that the controversial bill was introduced by his fellow opposition comrade, the president of JEEMA Asuman Basalirwa and it was supported by his party legislators in parliament. This caused a storm back home with many castigating how Bobi Wine is openly supporting homosexuality and even lashing at fellow opposition comrades who supported the bill.

Bobi Wine who had been on the receiving end and on pressure to make his stance on homosexuality loud and clear has come out with guns brazing to clarify what he really meant during the BBC interview. He says regime propagandists twisted his words to match their desired motive.

“You heard regime propagandists have been trying as much as possible to twist my words and am here to clarify on those words. First and foremost, my words were taken out of context on that BBC interview by those propagandists. I was in the United Kingdom after 10 years and many of you already know that in 2013 i was banned from the UK for life never again entering the UK because of the lyrics i in one of the songs that i did and in those lyrics yes i took responsibility because i actually called for the burning and killing of all homosexuals.”-Bobi Wine says in a video

Kyagulanyi further says he took responsibility and says he has grown up and transformed to know and understand matters differently.

“And as i a leader i transformed from calling for the death and killing of people that differ from me and regime propagandists tried as much as possible to twist my words but again still stand by my words because i am a leader which leader wants to be a leader of all people in the population even those that are not like me so am not calling for their killing”-Bobi Wine further says.

He also says the issue of homosexuals and LGBTI has been turned from a moral issue to a political tool being used by Museveni against his opponents gain popularity ahead of the 2026 general elections.

Four time president Dr Col Kiiza Besigye whose wife Winnie Byanyima openly supports homosexuals and their child is some times seen putting on women clothes also openly said that we ought be in an all inclusive but this doesn’t turn a person speaking like that to be a homosexual.
