Bobi Wine: The People's President
National Geographic Channel (DStv 181 / StarSat 220)
This documentary charts the unlikely rise of Bobi Wine, the pop star-turned-politician seeking to end Uganda's brutal dictatorship.
Born in the slums of Kampala, Bobi Wine - Ugandan opposition leader, former member of parliament, activist and national superstar musician - risks his life and the lives of his wife, Barbie, and their children to fight the ruthless regime led by Yoweri Museveni.
Museveni has been in power since 1986 and changed Uganda's constitution to enable him to run for yet another five-year term.
Running in the country's 2021 presidential elections, Bobi Wine uses his music to denounce the dictatorial regime and support his life mission to defend the oppressed and the voiceless people of Uganda.
In this fight, he must also take on the country's police and military, which are not afraid to use violence and torture in a vain attempt to intimidate and silence him and his supporters.
