The politician also took time to warn the public about con artists who have been using his name and that of People Power to solicit for funds in their name.
“Over the past days, I have received numerous complaints from friends here & abroad about persons who masquerade as @People_Power_Ug ambassadors to solicit funds in my name & in the name of our struggle. This money never reaches us to perform struggle activities.” He said.
He stressed that they have not sent out anyone to solicit funds on their behalf, and for that matter has not received any money for that purpose.
The latest development comes at a time when Bobi Wine is facing tough financial times as the government cracks the whip on his shows.
He revealed last week that the government wants to kill him financially by blocking his shows and intimidating his business partners.
