Opposition MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine (Kyadondo East) has finally confirmed that he will challenge President Yoweri Museveni in the 2021 presidential elections.
Bobi Wine was on Thursday speaking to CNN about the current political affairs in Uganda following last week’ release of NRM roadmap for 2021 elections.
During the interview, Bobi Wine was asked if he will contest against President Museveni to which he replied in affirmative.
“Well this question has come up several times and indeed many people have come to me calling me to stand for presidency against Museveni. We have been discussing this issue with my team and I must say I and my team are seriously considering challenging President Museveni in the next presidential election,” Bobi Wine said.
He said that he is confident of winning considering that most Ugandans have registered as voters through picking their National IDs.
“Many Ugandans registered as voters and overwhelming Museveni looks like our only way out,” he said. On several rallies, Bobi Wine has urged Ugandans without national IDs to start processing one ahead of the highly contested 2021 elections.
