Bulletproof Land Cruiser 4.5 liter Diesel
Bobi Wine has unveiled his black armored land cruiser UBJ series
Shortly after the presser, supporters were seen taking selfies on the armored SUV as others resorted to washing the ride in UBJ series.
The Toyota Land Cruiser is armored to the level of 6 implying that a shot from an AK47 can't shatter its steel or glass.
4.5 liter diesel with a touch screen monitor, it's window can't go all the way down due to the ballistic frame designed to protect you. It is very comfortable with enough headroom.
It has an upgraded suspension, upgraded breaks due to the extra armor weight. This all comes at a cost and Bobi Wine supporters supported the initiative through the 'Muda Muda' fundraising drive as he noted, could not thank them enough.
Let me take this opportunity to appreciate all friends in Uganda and abroad who have continued to support us in this struggle for freedom and democracy.
On behalf of the National Unity Platform, I would love to thank all comrades here and abroad who supported our campaign financially, to a point that we never lacked anything on the campaign trail. Some Ugandans gave as little as 500 shillings, as a testament to their commitment to the cause. There are some friends who deposited money at petrol stations so that our vehicles never lacked fuel. THANK YOU.
Some Ugandans took it upon themselves to raise funds that supported our polling agents and supervisors countrywide. THANK YOU.
From the time we were attacked with live bullets on the campaign trail and particularly when a projectile hit Dan Magic smashing his face, many Ugandans out of concern sent me bulletproof vests and ballistic helmets, which I put on throughout the campaign period, and gave others to comrades. Indeed, if I did not have one on in Masaka, the story would be different. THANK YOU
There is another group of comrades who kick-started a fundraising campaign for a bulletproof vehicle. These comrades informed me of their plan, but I thought it was an uphill task, given how expensive it is. A few weeks ago, these comrades surprised me when they informed me that they had succeeded in raising enough money for the vehicle, and here it is. I can’t THANK YOU enough.
