Bobi Wine: The ‘Ghetto President’ versus the strongman President

(CNN)In one corner is Bobi Wine, the charismatic and wildly popular musician, affectionately known in Uganda as ‘the Ghetto President.’

In the other is the real President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, who — like many of Africa’s former revolutionaries — has clung to power for decades, amid growing calls for him to step down.
Museveni, 73, has ruled the east African nation with an iron fist since he took power in 1986 and is not known to be soft on his opponents; he has seen off many of them in his 32-year rule.
