Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine is excited after being recognized with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation African Freedom award, 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Friedrich Naumann foundation is a German foundation for liberal politics, related to the Free Democratic Party which was established by Theodor Heuss, the first president of the Federal Republic of Germany, that promotes individual freedom and liberalism.
The Foundation follows the ideals of the Protestant theologian, which backs the idea of civic education and in the same regard, it is an agent of organized liberalism which promotes this through civic education, international political dialogues, and political counselling.
The 2021 presidential hopeful received the award on Friday night where he got a chance to rub shoulders with fellow freedom fighters from all over Africa and the world at large.
“What an honor. What an opportunity to share a platform with freedom fighter from all over Africa and the world.” Bobi Wine
This year alone, Bobi Wine has been recognized with numerous accolades as a Freedom Fighter more than any year since he joined active politics.
The most recent recognition he got was two weeks ago when he was named as the Best Male Politician of 2019 by the Young African Leaders Summit.
Congratulations Bobi Wine!
