Bobi Wine looks forward to swearing in, says he will not be for sale
Kyagulanyi insists he is an independent MP whose interests are in serving the people of Kyadondo East and he has little interest in aligning himself with either NRM or the opposition.

The recently elected Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu popularly known Bibi Wine, is set to swear in on Tuesday afternoon during the plenary sitting of the House. 

As he makes his official entry into the August house, the musician turned politician is being courted by both sides of the house, the ruling NRM party and the opposition, to work with them by signing a memorandum of understanding with either of them.

Kyagulanyi insists he is an independent MP whose interests are in serving the people of Kyadondo East and he has little interest in aligning himself with either side. The man who was previously held the moniker of "Ghetto president" says he is not up for sale in Parliament.

 However, the new MP added that he is open to cooperating with both NRM and the Opposition on matters of national interest and development.

Last week, while at the vigil of deceased former Democratic President Ssebaana Kizito at his home in Kansanga, Kampala, Kyagulanyi shock hands with President Yoweri Museveni, who is also the NRM party chairman. Some of his supporters did not take kindly to this gesture and protested on social media.

But Kyagulanyi says as a civil man, he had to show r spect to the country’s chief executive officer and fountain on  honour.

Kyagulanyi has invited his former opponents to the celebration as a sign that he wants to work with them to develop the constituency.
