Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili, popularly known as Babu Owino, seems to be quite famous in Uganda.
This can be attributed to his friendship with musician-turned politician Robert Kyangulanyi also known as Bobi Wine.
Babu Owino had posted on his Facebook page showing support for Bobi Wine who had earlier on declared his presidential bid.
Owino had some unkind words for Uganda’s president, saying Yoweri Museveni should go to prison.
Ugandans on the controversial legislator’s post seemed very pleased with his announcement, showing support for Bobi Wine.
“Most obliged, let your message reach upon the almighty and We East Africans overcome this despotic Rogue Museveni,” wrote a user by the name Kyazze Steven.
However, not all Ugandans were pleased with Babu Owino as they told him to redirect his energy on Kenyan politics and stay out of matters that do not concern him.
Babu’s sentiments come a few hours after Kyangulanyi formally announced that he will run for Uganda’s top seat in 2021.
“On behalf of the people of Uganda I am challenging you to free and fair elections,” said Kyangulanyi, who aims to unseat President Museveni.
