Uganda’s opposition politician Bobi Wine has ridiculed President Yoweri Museveni’s move to win the support of young people.

President Museveni over the weekend visited the Kibuye and Katwe settlements in the capital Kampala to launch a savings and loans project for the youth.

During that visit a picture of him standing by a mural depicting him as a ‘Man of Ghetto’ was taken.

But that picture has angered Bobi Wine who has for a long time declared himself ‘ghetto president’.

Both politicians have been at loggerheads for sometime now.

Bobi Wine who is a musician-turned-politician, has declared his intention to challenge Museveni at the polls in the next presidential election.

The 75-year-old leader, Museveni has however called Bobi Wine as an “enemy of the country’s prosperity”.

Bobi Wine said in a tweet that Mr Museveni for 34 years has “impoverished, marginalised & ignored the ghetto. Tired of indignity, the ghetto rose up to speak- led by the Ghetto President.

He dismissed us. We persisted. Very scared & desperate, he now returns as ‘Man of Ghetto.'”
