Kampala-Musician cum politician Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine is to start countrywide consultations for his 2021 presidential bid on Monday, January 6, 2020.
The politician cum singer received a go ahead from the country’s Electoral Commission in December 2019. The commission, cautioned him not turn the consultative meetings into campaign rallies.
According to Bobi Wine, the consultations will begin from Kyadondo East near the capital before going to northern Uganda.
Bobi Wine said in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle that he had complied with all the legal requirements before kicking off the exercise on Monday.
He said, “We begin consultations from home in Kyadondo East on Monday, and then go to six districts in Northern Uganda. Having complied with all legal requirements, our hope is that security agencies will not interrupt our activities.”
Bobi Wine is just one of the three 2021 presidential aspirants so far cleared by the Electoral Commission. The other two are Joseph Mwambazi, an independent aspirant and a yet to be identified female candidate.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said in December that all aspirants are required to follow the provisions in the Public Order Management Act (POMA).
However there is fear that he will be stopped by the Government.
