The Ghetto gladiator H.E Bobi Wine is warming up to contest for Kyadondo East Constituency Member of Parliament seat, which recently became vacant after the High Court in Kampala threw out FDC’s Apollo Kantinti over electoral irregularities in the February 18 elections.
Though Bobi Wine has not yet made an official declaration towards the issue but it’s also vivid with the way the singer has continuously strengthened ties with Uganda’s leading opposition party FDC.
We are not sure whether Omubanda Wa Kabaka will stand on the FDC ticket, because Kantinti could stand again.
However the singer is a close friend to FDC stalwart Rtd. Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye and he visited him in Luzira prison where he is incarcerated on treason charges earlier last week.
Bobi Wine who comes from a political family is interested in the seat. His elder brother “Chairman” Nyanzi Ssentamu was an LC V councilor in Kampala and he stood for the Kampala Central MP seat on an NRM primaries but lost and the constituency was won by independent candidate Mohammad Nsereko in the recent elections.
The singer is a brother to former Democratic party MP Flag bearer for Kiira Municipality Eddy Yaawe during the recently held February elections.
