The National Unity Platform president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine; has made shocking statements during his recently concluded media interview with BBC UK. After close to a 10-year ban from the UK over his lyrical statements against LGBTQ people, he was recently hosted on the BBC to answer several questions about his UK visit and his political career in Uganda.
During the interview, the interviewer asked to state his stand on LGBTQ rights to which he said that people change. Whatever he wrote and sang in the past would currently not represent who he is as a person.
Regarding the LGBTQ law in Uganda, he said that the law was sponsored by President Museveni. He was then asked why the national unity platform members of parliament supported the law. To this, he said that there are members of the National Unity platform who are in bed with the current regime in Uganda.
He was later asked whether he would repeal the law if he became the president of Uganda. To this, he said that he would be very cautious about this law since it was made with an agenda of oppressing those who are in the opposition.
