Singer-turned-MP Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, yet again added another accolade to his shelf after he scooped an International Human Rights award at the 2019 Peace and Human Rights Summit in Chicago, USA. The People Power pressure group leader received the award on Tuesday night and it was handed to him by Martin Luther King Jr.’s associate and politician Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. This comes after he was selected as one of the several panelists from across the world on the forum which was organized by the veteran human rights defender and politician. The five-day forum was moderated by Dr. Ewa Ewa (Illinois state lawmaker) and Joe Biden – a current presidential runner on the Democratic Party card in the forthcoming 2020 US presidential elections – who was the opening speaker. During the meet, Bobi Wine rubbed shoulders with many other influential human rights activists who included Momodou Jallow, Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Daniela Gomes, Nasir Zakaria, and Dr. Isabella Alexander on the panel.
