As 2021 nears for Ugandans to go the general polls, possible candidates have started initiating plans of winning the highly contested poll that will see over 70% of voters below 35 years. Among the favorites ready to challenge Museveni’s 33+ year rule is Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine.
Bobi wine seems too determined to challenge the 75 year old Man from Rwakitula and he has been widely seeking endorsements from different political blocs, he recently made an alliance with the four time presidential candidate Dr Kiiza Bessigye and it’s reported the two are yet to announce a great deal ahead of 2021.
The Fire brand politician spent some time over this weekend in northern Uganda traversing and making contacts in Acholi sub-region where he confirmed to the people present that he has no other option of serving this nation apart from challenging President Museveni who has been the helm of Uganda’s politics since 1986 when he was just 4 years.
I reconfirmed to them that I am willing and ready to take on the task, and that we ought to unite to make this smooth transition happen. Thank you Acholi for the love.#GetYourNational_ID #PeoplePower_OurPower pic.twitter.com/x6xatwJ6Ud
