Musician turned politician Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is on Cloud 9 after meeting youthful South African opposition politician Julius Malema.Bobi Wine traveled to South Africa last week to meet People Power supporters and Ugandans living there.
The Kyadondo East Member of Parliament was given a heroic welcome by his supporters on South Africa, where he also conducted fundraising for his presidential bid come 2021.
We are told that during his sojourn in South Africa Bobi Wine was so elated to meet Malema, who promised to support him in all ways to ensure that he takes over as President in 2021.
Julius Sello Malema (born 3 March 1981) is a South African Pan Africanist politician who serves as Member of Parliament and the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, a South African political party, which he founded in July 2013.
He previously served as President of the African National Congress Youth League from 2008 to 2012. Malema was a member of the ANC from the age of nine until his expulsion from the party in April 2012 at the age of thirty-one.
He occupies a notably controversial position in South African public and political life, having risen to prominence with his support for ANC president, and later President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma. He was described by both Zuma and the Premier of Limpopo Province as the “future leader” of South Africa.
Less favourable portraits paint him as a “reckless populist” with the potential to destabilise South Africa and to spark racial conflict.
