Bobi Wine is currently running to defeat Yoweri Museveni in the upcoming Ugandan elections. Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi, as he is known by his government names, has proved to be a formidable opponent for the 30-year incumbent. So far, his massive popularity with Ugandan youth has gotten him in plenty of trouble with Museveni's authorities.

He has been arrested several times, the most recent one causing deadly chaos in the streets of Kampala three weeks ago. Bobi wine, is not taking any chances on grooming his children to carry on his fighting legacy. The legislator despite having a tight schedule as a presidential candidate, makes time for family.

In a video he shared on his social media platforms, the legislator is seen taking son, Solomon Kampala through some boxing drills.

Kampala, who is named after Uganda's capital city, seemed to be on top of his boxing drill, a sign that the young man must have been getting some lessons from the Ghetto Gladiator, who knows he might be a boxing champion in the making.

This came shortly after the two participated in the Kabaka Birthday run, an event organized by the kingdom of Buganda to celebrate Kabaka Mwenda Mutebi's birthday.

Kyagulanyi grew up in the Ghettoes of Kamwokya and apart from music, the other skills he honed during his time in the Ghetto was boxing.

He has often showcased his boxing skills and this is not new to a lot of people that know and follow him. There was a time in 2008 when the legislator featured in an exhibition fight where he fought in a super lightweight contest and went through a four-round contest. 

At the time, he said he was not going into the ring to become the next world champion, but to give boxing a new image and to show the world one can be successful in the sport.

The boxing spirit is not only alive in Kampala and Kyagukanyi but also in Barbie Tungu, the wife to Kyagulanyi. At one time in a video that was circulated on social media, Itungo was seen throwing punches, still under her husband’s instructions.

The boxing mentality is so true about a healthy living lifestyle, but we don’t know what might become of Ugandans once Kyagulanyi becomes president, boxing might become a mandatory skill for all Ugandans.
