    “I will not be deterred” Babu Owino sends a strong message to Museveni after he is banned from traveling to Uganda

    "I will not be deterred" Babu Owino sends a strong message to Museveni after he is banned from traveling to Uganda

    Babu Owino has been banned from traveling to Uganda following his persistent criticisms of president Yoweri Museveni’s dictatorship.
    In September this year, Uganda’s Minister of State for East African Community Affairs Julius Wandera called on Babu Owino to apologize to Museveni.
    Kyalenga Festival
    Babu Owino

    Babu was supposed to attend Bobi Wine’s Kyalenga Festival on Saturday but the Ugandan government through the ministry of Internal Affairs quickly barred him from traveling to Kampala.
    The Embakasi East MP issued a statement after Internal Affairs minister General Haji Abubakar blocked his entry into Uganda;
    STATEMENT BY COMRADE BABU OWINO ON UGANDA TRAVEL BAN; I WILL NOT BE SILENCED!
    I am in receipt of official communication from the Minister for Internal Affairs for Uganda General Haji Abubakar seeking to ban my travel to Uganda without special clearance from his office.
    This draconian veto came just ahead of my trip to Kampala to attend the Kyalenga Festival yesterday. It is a backward and authoritarian response to my unequivocal support for Honorable Robert Kyagulanyi and the young people of Uganda against the tyranny of President Yoweri Museveni.
    Honorable Bobi Wine and I remain brothers in ideology and no amount of intimidation will stop us from working together to liberate the people of Africa!
    I wish to categorically state that General Haji’s ban will not deter me from agitating for greater democratic space in Uganda, Kenya and indeed, the entire continent. I will not falter in my pursuit for respect for human rights and the meaningful involvement of the youth in our nations’ affairs.
    The arc of the moral universe may be long but it always bends towards justice.President Museveni must know that nothing lasts forever. He has overstayed his welcome and soon, the popular wishes of the Ugandan people will outweigh his use of force and violence.
    I urge the youth in Uganda not to be discouraged from this minor set back,I will come to Uganda whether the guy is alive or dead.We will overcome!
    Signed and dated,
    Comrade Babu Owino,
    MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement.
