City Businessman Frank Gashumba has said that President Museveni is on tension over Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s political move to join the Kyadondo East parliamentary by election.
“We know the NRM mission is to threaten the voter’s however I want you to also know that Museveni every time he sees us in huge numbers like this, he immediately shakes because he vividly knows that we are winning.” Gashumba said.
Gashumba made this statement during the campaign rally in Wampewo playground Kasangati on Monday evening where also called upon voters to eat the money NRM team is offering but however remember to vote Omubanda Wa Kabaka since he is the only candidate who will redeem the community.
He concluded calling upon them to vote in solidarity and jealously guard the ballots until they are announced.
Bobi wine is battling with other five candidates including Apollo Kantinti, a member of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), is also back in the race to reclaim his seat. Others are Independent candidate Nkuyingi Muwada, William Sitenda Ssebalu of the National Resistance Movement, Kayongo Sowedi Male, Democratic Party’s Lilian Babirye and Kasasa Edward who is also an independent candidate.
The seat fell vacant after the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the High Court decision nullifying the election of Apollo Kantinti. Court ruled that there was non-compliance with election rules during the February 18, 2016 elections, including disfranchising the voters and also failing to secure custody of election materials.
