Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi better known as Bobi Wine is considering challenging President Museveni for the Presidency come 2021 general elections.
While appearing on CNN for an interview, the self styled ‘Ghetto President’ confirmed that he wants Museveni’s seat.
“We want to have many Ugandans registered as voters and overwhelming Museveni looks like our only way out,” Bobi Wine said.
When probed further, Kyagulanyi said, he and his team have been discussing this issue and that many people had urged him to stand for presidency.
“Many people have come to me calling for me to stand. I must say, i’m seriously considering challenging President Museveni in the next Presidential elections,” Bobi Wine said.
On Wednesday, Jamaican dancehall king Clifford Smith, better known as Mr. Vegas joined the long list of celebrities who have promised to support Kyagulanyi during the 2021 presidential campaigns.
Kyagulanyi and Mr. Vegas met earlier this year during the Rebel Salute, Jamaica’s biggest Reggae Festival.
Mr. Vegas is popularly known for songs like Black Princess, Wakanda Jam among others.
“I will come and campaign for you when you are ready bro! Africa stands up! This is the future! I met this man! He could have stuck to his music and watch our people suffering continue. The sacrifice is real,” Mr Vegas tweeted.
It should be remembered that a few weeks ago, while speaking at the burial of Stella Njuba, the daughter of former FDC chairperson, Sam Kalega Njuba , Bobi Wine asked the Security Minister, Gen. Elly Tumwine to let the President know that he is interested in his seat.
“Now that you are here, I would like you to take a message to Museveni…tell him that we are not his enemies. We have no problem with him. Okay, we want that seat [presidency] but not in bad faith.”
The Generals chuckled again while mourners clapped and shouted in applause.
