Bobi Wine: To say that this is extremely humbling is an understatement! I feel very honore

To say that this is extremely humbling is an understatement!
I feel very honored to be named amongst the TIME 100 Next- a list of the world’s next most inflential people and rising stars. I am very delighted to share this recognition with 99 other highly accomplished individuals who are shaping the future of business, entertainment, sports, politics, health, science and activism, and more.

I am dedicating this recognition to the young people of Uganda, especially the ghetto youth. May this be a reminder and encouragement that you are not what your detractors say you are. You are what you choose to be!
I have been reflecting on my life and the many things I have gone through – from selling radio cassettes on the streets of Kampala; to collecting grasshoppers for survival; to working as a dobbi, etc. Now, making it to such a list! I can only return all the glory and praise to the Almighty and pay tribute to all those who have been part of this journey.
When you get such a recognition, it does not only call for celebration- it also calls for deep reflection. This can only strengthen our resolve to fight on, struggle on, soldier on- until freedom, human rights and equal opportunity return to our country, and indeed our continent.
