Maimane comments on political unrest in Uganda

Published on

Mmusi Maimane has commented on the current political unrest in Uganda, as videos of presidential hopeful, Bobi Wine and the mistreatment he allegedly faces are being circulated on social media.

Chief Activist of One South Africa Movement (OSA), Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Wednesday, 13 January 2021, to speak out against the current political unrest in Uganda. The uproar begun as presidential hopeful, Bobi Wine begun sharing what he alleged were intimidating tactics by current Ugandan President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

The first video from Wine suggested that his team experienced harassment and detention from security operatives, who were allegedly sent by Museveni. The subsequent video showcased how his wife was arrested in front of their son, with the son audibly fighting for his mother while she was dragged away.

Maimane joined the call of other outspoken African leaders for the ban of Museveni from Twitter. This comes as outgoing United States President, Donald Trump was banned from most of the popular social media platforms, due to allegedly inciting the recent Capitol Building incident.

Maimane stated, “To every young African, I appeal to you directly. We need to change how these old men treat us. In order to do that we have to stand in solidarity. Join me in calling for Twitter to ban Museveni. What he is doing is not acceptable.”
