The Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, has said he will remain in the ghettos of Kamwokya even after becoming a legislator.

He was responding to the New Vision question: “You grew up in the ghettos of Kamwokya, how did you hatch a plan on how to get out of there and to have impact on society?”

Speaking at his home in Magere village, Wakiso district, Kyagulanyi said emphatically that he never planned to get out of the ghetto.

“For us, the ghetto youth, we work hard not to leave the ghetto, but to make the ghetto a better place to live. So I never left the ghetto. I want to make the ghetto the better place to live,” the recently elected MP said.

Kyagulanyi, the self-styled 'Ghetto President', grew up in the ghettos of Kamwokya, a Kampala suburb.

“When I came here, it was a bush. There were poor people around; I said I want to live among these people so that we make this place better. I did not go to Muyenga or Munyonyo or anywhere, I came here,” he said.

The 35-year-old reggae star, added:  “I live among poor people, but I don’t want that to be the same in five years. I want these so-called poor people to help themselves come out of that so-called poverty.”
