One tweep felt that Bobi Wine was full of mediocre for asking them to vote for Babu Owino and hilariously asked President Yoweri Museveni to keep ruling Uganda. This comment was a hit at Bobi Wine who has been vying for presidency while advocating for the removal of Museveni from office, calling him a dictator.

However, another tweep felt that Bobi Wine was right for asking Kenyans to vote for Babu Owino because it proved that he was loyal to his friend despite past events. This tweep said loyalty is paramount to friendship and Bobi Wine has showed he can play mature politics.


Babu Owino in the past also shown loyalty to Bobi Wine when he spoke out against President Yoweri Museveni. Babu Owino was so vocal that Ugandan minister of Internal Affairs Haji Abubakar banned him from entering Uganda as he accused Babu Owino of undermining President Museveni’s government. This minister accused Babu Owino and Bobi Wine of collaborating to undermine the legitimately elected government of the republic of Uganda.
