Though Besigye never supported Bobi Wine directly, he was quoted saying that ‘If Bobi Wine Wins, he is in Business’.
Bobi Wine has been battling five other candidates including Apollo Kantinti (FDC) Nkuyingi Muwada (Independent), William Sitenda Ssebalu of the National Resistance Movement, Kayongo Sowedi Male, 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.
