Artiste Bobi Wine last Friday made a very bold statement during the send off of Keron Raphael Kabugo, Juliana Kanyomozi's departed son.

Bobi Wine, who was appointed parenting ambassador by Twaweza, a citizen-centred initiative to promote education, wore a cap branded 'I l*** weed' during the burial of Keron in Kiryagonja near Matugga along Bombo Road.

Weed is a slang term for marijuana. The red cap also bore a logo of the marijuana leaf, yellow in colour.

Early this year Bobi Wine caused a storm while at a hang out, The Office in Jinja, when he openly demonstrated to revelers how to roll a 'joint' of marijuana and proceeded to smoke it as fans cheered him on.

Pictures of his demo were spalshed in The Kampala Sun, prompting the Police to pronounce themselves that they had not received a complaint regarding the incident in Jinja.

Shortly before that Bobi Wine, together with the Police, had launched a partnership to fight crime in the surburbs of Kabalagala and Kansanga through music aimed at curbing the vice of drug trafficking.
