Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, has tipped youth in Amuru District to register and acquire national identity cards ahead of the 2021 General Election.
“For many years, President Museveni has been dividing people and the divisionism has kept youth in prison. We call on our fellow youth to unite if they are to come out of these prisons of division in the forthcoming elections,” the musician-turned politician said.
Mr Kyagulanyi urged the youth on Sunday during the thanksgiving prayers for MP Anthony Akol (Kilak North) in Amuru. The legislator survived a road accident in Kiryandongo District in April this year.
Mr Kyagulanyi added that whoever preaches disunity in regard to religion, political affiliation and tribe is not a friend and such a person should be treated as an enemy.
“I Am ready to lead you in this struggle but you should know that we all have powers and we must join hands together and fight impunity in this government,” the MP said.

Call for unity
The Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Ms Betty Aol Ocan, called for togetherness among Opposition parties if they are to change the regime come 2021.
“Opposition parties should not fight each other. We should look forward to working together if we want to take over the leadership of this country in the forthcoming election,” Ms Aol said.
Ms Akol was one of the victims of a road accident at Kafu junction in Kiryandongo District on Kampala-Gulu highway in April.
