About the show
Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine urged the youth to prepare for the 2021 general elections in advance.
Bobi Wine said the youth should register in time to get their national IDs which is a vital document that qualifies one as a voter.
He said it would make no sense for youth to cheer up politicians at the fore front of political change when they are not eligible voters.
