Bwindi is one of the many gule characters who warn of the dangers of the cashed up playboy. He is a womanizer, who buys favors of women and leaves them so that he can move on to another. He frequently dances with a padded crotch, to suggest his sexual appetites. Sometimes the visual clues of gule wamkulu are very subtle – and at others, overt and blatant.
