As 2021 draws nearer, Ugandans seem to be eager to express themselves politically. Musician Apass, once a people power die-hard is the latest culprit following his social-media post saying there’s nothing wrong with supporting Museveni.
Singer and song-writer Alexander Bagonza aka Apass, has been seen identifying with, and supporting some of the activities under People Power leader Bobiwine. Apass was instrumental and at the frontline during the city protests against the OTT in 2019 led by Bobiwine.
He however later denied being part of those protests saying his face was photoshoped into the images that made rounds on social media. Well, maybe he was joking being the comical Apass that we know. The “Ccupa ku Ccupa” singer’s post on his social media page seem to have been taken seriously this time.
He bashed people for being loyal to political parties yet they only blind them from holding the politicians accountable whenever they fail to execute their duties. Then he urges Ugandans to stop throwing bottles at artistes who support Museveni claiming they are not the problem, but rather focus the venom should be directed political leaders who haven’t done much for the country.
Apass goes ahead to point out how Museveni should not be blamed for the failure of so many things in the country, yet there are several other leaders who have failed to execute their roles and hence causing collapse of the system as well. He also questioned why the blame is put unto the person who gives the money, rather than the people who use the funds.
