Uganda's pop star and politician Bobi Wine has recently opened up to the New York Times on his struggles to fight for Freedom. In the interview, the 39-year-old star revealed that it gets lonelier and draining to keep up with the challenges he continuously faces. Bobi admitted that, in most cases, he is left psychologically and physically exhausted.

"It drains you when you do the right thing."

Wine also brushed on his take on the last Ugandan Elections, which he participated in as the opposition leader. In the description, Wine termed his presidential bid a massive success as it achieved its primary objective of turning the world's attention to President Museveni's government.

"We are glad that he did this in the full glare of the world, unlike ever before. The world is watching," he said.

Asked whether he is still venturing in his Music, Bobi had this to say. 

"I have had to learn to proceed even when my friends are held back," he said. "And the next time I am offered a louder microphone, which is the studio microphone, I will express exactly what's on my mind."

Just a month ago, Bobi Wine unveiled the armoured vehicle saying it was a gift to him purchased by well-wishers. He announced that the brand-new black Toyota SUV, estimated to cost more than Ksh 15 Million, was donated by his supporters after running a campaign to acquire the high-end bulletproof car.

"There is another group of comrades who kick-started a fundraising campaign for a bulletproof vehicle. These comrades informed me of their plan, but I thought it was an uphill task, given how expensive it is," he wrote.
