Appearing on one of the media houses, the motor-mouthed Mwenda attacked the People Power – Uganda icon by saying he is so ignorant when it comes to national issues. Mwenda was trying to answer a question when asked to give a personal verdict on the recently concluded opinion polls of the presidential candidates.
He added that Ugandans will be doing a soul-selling mistake to vote Mr. Kyagulanyi who is empty-headed on national issues. “Bobi Wine is able to create a sensation because he is fresh, he is not a soldier and a westerner. I, however, find him blank on basic national issues. The opposition in Uganda has a problem. They feel they are so awesome, so cool and loved that they don’t need to win anyone over”
He, however, agrees with Sulaiman Kidandala that the opposition struggle needs a new face and that should be Bobi wine
“If I was Museveni, I would provoke a fight between Bobi Wine and Besigye. I think Bobi should lead the struggle and Besigye steps down but I don’t think Besigye’s supporters and his wife will support that”
“Besigye is a very principled man, a resilient fighter and that sacrifice has made him win the hearts of Ugandans. To that degree, I hold him in high esteem”
When asked to talk about the Union that was formed between FDC’s People Government and People power Movement he, however, said that those two can’t co-exist
“I don’t see how Bobi Wine and Besigye can agree to talk to someone who doesn’t agree with them. Museveni is tolerant. These guys are terrible.”
“My personal experience with Museveni is that he is a very tolerant person. He has grown older but I don’t think he has changed.”
“Museveni’s character is that he’ll work with those he disagrees with. NRM tolerates Sekikuubo irrespective of how he criticizes it. Can opposition tolerate someone like Sekikuubo.”
He later on towards the end of show withdrew his words of calling Bobi wine empty ended but stood on his statement of hi being less informed concerning national issues.
“I withdraw the word “empty-headed” that I used to address you earlier on the show, I apologize. Bobi Wine, you know I love u so much and your wife, I think she is very pretty. I just find you (Bobi Wine) less informed about factors/issues affecting our country.”
