Ugandan comedian Patrick Salvador has ignited a heated debate after weighing in on the continued detention of NUP Presidential candidate Bobi Wine.
Salvado who is President Yoweri Museveni’s diehard supporter, condemned the unlawful and continued detention of Bobi Wine and his family, making it clear that he doesn’t agree with everything the government does.
In an update seen by Pulse Live, the funnyman pointed out that no country in Africa has managed to achieve a free and fair election, let alone Uganda.
“Supporting @KagutaMuseveni doesn’t necessarily mean I agree with everything his government does, the general treatment of opposition during the whole election period has been appalling, especially the treatment of @bobiwine - There hasn’t been any sensible reason Y @bobiwine or his colleagues are still under detention.
It’s a very sad & disturbing thing wen injustice is caused by those you have faith in.
As 4 #FreeNFair elections. I’m sorry if we still think this can be achieved anywhere in Africa. It’s taken me time to share my feelings coz well whatever I tried to communicate was watered down by insults but at the end of the day I’m human & I know injustice #FreeDomIs4All” reads Patrick Salvado’s post.
However, despite explaining himself and what he feels for the opposition, a section of the online community was quick to roast him over what they termed as being a hypocrite.
