The Uganda Musicians Association general elections were supposed to happen on May 23 2022 but didn’t go through as the UMA electoral committee decided to postpone the event following King Saha’s legal threat.
Through his lawyers, Lukwago & Co. Advocates, King Saha complained to the chairperson of, the UMA electoral Commission citing what he called unfair online voting.
He argued that UMA has failed to vail him with the voters’ register, failed to display the voter’s register for scrutiny, update, and verification says there is no need to conduct elections online, and objects to online voting, they have failed to conduct civic education for purposes of equipping candidates and voters with technical and basic knowledge regarding online voting and failed to establish measures to ensure credibility of online polling or guarantee a free and fair election.
For those above reasons, Saha through his lawyers asked the UMA chairman to postpone elections and in a bid to conduct free and fair elections, Mr. Geoffrey Ekongot postponed the elections to streamline the voting process.
The elections have been postponed from May 23 to June 6.
