Musician turned politician Kyangulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine was officially declared by the Electoral Commission at Kyambogo Cricket University grounds to contest for the highest office in the country before midday on Tuesday 3rd November 2020.
Justice Simon Byabakama the returning officer of the presidential candidates duly declared Kyagulanyi Ssentanmu Robert as a candidate for the 2021 presidential elections after he successfully met the requirements to contest for the office.
Mr. Kyagulanyi was seconded by his beloved wife Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi and his longtime friend Nubian Li.
Bobi Wine said he’s contesting for the highest office in Uganda to represent the oppressed, the weak, the poor, and the downtrodden, among others.
“I take this moment to announce that what we are witnessing now is the launch of a critical phase in our struggle to liberate our country from a dictatorship that has crippled us for close to four decades. We have closed the book of Lamentation. We have now opened the book of Acts. I’m here to save President Museveni from himself; from his corruption and patronage, among others. Fellow Ugandans, I present myself as a servant, not a boss. We are going to run a people-centered government. Our government will zone Uganda into agricultural zones,” Bobi Wine said moments after being nominated.
Since becoming an MP in 2017, he has been routinely arrested and put under house arrest, his concerts banned and public rallies dispersed with teargas.
