There have been claims that the Ugandan politician Robert Changulanyi alias Bobi Wine is gay. The musician turned politician has refuted the allegations claiming it’s a bid to tarnish his right name. Bobi was the primary challenger in the recent Uganda elections, marred by violence and killings of several people.
These reports came after claims that his presidential campaigns were being funded by a homosexual group based in the United States.
I am married to a woman you all know, it is a shame, it is disrespectful, and I feel insulted to be involved in the sex talk when we have few hours to elections,” he explained to a local television station.
The adamant politician insisted that he is a man of his principles, and he upholds the African culture and terms the reports as “diversionary.”
The accusation of Bobi Wine being involved with a homosexual group came from President Yoweri Museveni. As president, the old man had declared homosexuality illegal in Uganda.
