Bidandi Ssali’s verdict on Bobi Wine has left the NRM block and his son confused of whether he is threatening them or speaking reality.
Bidandi a former presidential aspirant warned Museveni and NRM CEC leaders never to underestimate Bobi wine as Obote did when it came to Museveni.
Here is the full verdict Bidandi had to say about the people power pioneer and also Chairman of the liberation struggle :-
“Museveni does not underestimate his political opponents. If Museveni was underestimating Hon Kyagulanyi; would he give out money to the youths any howly?, he knows that Kyagulanyi’s strength is in youths.
Museveni can not do Obote’s mistake. Obote’s greatest mistake was to underestimate Museveni. In politics the moment you underestimate your opponents, your finished.
Politics is a different thing, the more you underestimate your opponent is the more you motivate him and the more you encourage him to prove you wrong.
Now the reason why Hon Kyagulanyi has become strong is that the people around Museveni underestimate him. And he seems to be calculative cause the advantage he has, he does not focus on the people who underestimate him.
A person who has a big dreams does not have time for people who discourage him. Hon Kyagulanyi will become a serious threat in 2021 if all Opposition parties back him.”
