Bobi Wine raps SMACK headteacher for “continuously hounding” his son

The leader of the National Unity Platform ‘Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu’, also familiar with the name of ‘Bobi Wine’ has gone hard on St Mary’s College for “continuously” hounding” his son Solomon Ssekayi Kampala.

In February, the reports indicated that Kampala was handed a two-week suspension over the charges of indiscipline.

On Saturday, during the time of parents and teachers meeting at the school along Entebbe road, Kyagulanyi attacked the school headmaster, Brother Deodati Aganyira, over continued mistreatment of his son at the school.

According to Kyagulanyi, his son was blocked from competing in one of the perfect positions in the school for flimsy reasons.

“You told me that for a child, it is necessary to be a leader in this school. For this, they must be an A grade student, not an average student like my son. The second reason I was given for my son not running for leadership in this school is that overly popular student are not allowed to run for office. I was hurt because we all parents train our children to become leaders,” the visibly angry Kyagulanyi said on Saturday amidst support from several fellow parents who attended the meeting.

Kyagulanyi said his son had told him that he was being targeted at the school, noting that he had ignored the reports but noted it was too much for him to bear.

The leader of NUP and opposition strongman stated that he had accepted to heed to the request by the school administration that he stays away from the meetings of school in order to avoid attracting unnecessary attention but said he felt that it was time to speak out.

He also highlighted some circumstances under which his son was suspended from school and stated that they had entered a “gentlemen’s agreement” for the matter not to be talked about in public but said he was astonished to see the same in the media.

“We totally agree that everything remains there without anything leaking out, and that’s why I never said anything to the public even when I have plenty of access to the media, as you all know. Since it’s the headteacher who recently spoke to the media, let me also make my case,” Kyagulanyi said.

Public feedback:

Several public members have shown their support to Kyagulanyi, saying it was wrong to leak the information to the media.
