Sembabule district in Uganda is a dictator Yoweri Museveni regime hotbed. His globally discredited corrupt Foreign Affairs Minister, Sam Kuteesa, is the de facto King of the area.

For any ordinary mortals, support for any party other than the regime ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) is near suicide, yet leading presidential candidate Bobi Wine traveled there this week to campaign for the Jan. 14, 2021 vote.

As expected he was met with heavy deployment of the Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF), the Special Forces Command (SFC) whose commander is Gen. Muhoozi Kaenerugaga, dictator Museveni’s son, the Uganda Police Force, the Anti-Terrorism Force, the Violent Crime unit, and plain clothes security operatives. It seems the whole establishment was there except dictator Museveni himself and his cabinet of ministers.

No sooner had Bobi Wine showed up when Police tanks began spraying water canon on the expectant crowds, waiting for Bobi Wine. Teargas, and live bullets were fired into the crowds with the intention of dispersing them. People were mercilessly beaten by whip-bearing soldiers. It was total pandemonium. It was clear what the message was the regime does not want Bobi Wine here.

Amidst all this, Bobi Wine emerging through his vehicle’s open roof, defiantly delivered a message of hope to the people. He highlighted the ongoing abuse and show of force by the regime’s security agents. The man never stopped speaking truth to power. At one time, the security agents even stopped harassing people. The officers appeared to stop and marvel at Bobi Wine’s braveness. Meanwhile, the throngs of people played hide-and-seek with the police and armed forces while following Bobi Wine's convoy and chanting "People Power, Our Power!; Our Power, People Power!” The regime security personnel appeared quite overwhelmed by the people's enthusiasm as they also resorted to simply driving around aimlessly.

The defiance exhibited by Bobi Wine in Sembabule, plus the enthusiasm of the multitude of people, indicates that come what may, whatever types of obstacles and intimidation that the dictatorship tries, Ugandans are tired and want change.

All signs indicate that Ugandans will overwhelming vote for change on Jan. 14, 2021.
