Singer cum People Power honcho Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has snubbed Eddy Kenzo’s rant and gone ahead to pick Presidential nomination forms for next year’s elections.
Since the start of this week, Kenzo has dominated headlines after his recorded phone conversation in which he questions Bobi’s leadership credentials was leaked on internet.
However Bobi, who doubles as National Unity Platform (NUP) party leader has opted to keep his eye on the top seat other than addressing Kenzo’s burning issues.
For starters, Bobi publicly made his intentions of kicking incumbent Sevo out of power by ballot in July last year.
According to Paul Bukenya, the Electoral Commission (EC) deputy spokesperson, Bobi Wine together with 8 other presidential aspirants were issued nomination forms from the EC headquarters in Kampala.
Others are Nkangabwa John Herbert, Lugudde Katwe Elizabeth, Dr Ssekimpi Joel, Kafeero Charles Mutasa, Niyonzima Edward, Godwin Ssempebwa Batuwadde, Ainebyoona Auna and Ebetu Simon, bringing the total number of individuals who have so far picked presidential nomination forms to 19.
According to the Presidential Elections Act, an aspirant is supposed to be endorsed by at least 100 supporters in two thirds of all the districts before nomination.
The revised 2021 election roadmap indicates that the nomination of candidates for presidential elections will take place from November 2-3, 2020.
“During the process of looking for the signatures you must follow the health ministry guidelines on social distancing to avoid the spread of coronavirus,” said Byabakama on Monday.
