Uganda has of late been a war zone because of politics and it is said that singer turned Politician Robert Kyagulanyi known as Bobi Wine to many has influenced a group of young people to join his people power movement. The People Power movement has since then proved to be strong and has become a threat to the President of the Country Yoweri Kaguta Museveni that everyone who is highly involved with Bobi Wine has been paying the price.
