KAMPALA – Lubaga South Legislator Kato Lubwama has publicly revealed that he will be voting for National Unit Platform (NUP) Presidential flag bearer, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in the 2021 general elections.
Despite being a Democratic Party member, Lubwama said that he decided to support NUP’s Bobi Wine because according to him, he is the strongest opposition candidate and most of his people ‘Lubaga South’ are supporting the Ghetto Gladiator for presidency.
The seasoned comedian in an interview with a local TV station said that he had already reached out to Bobi Wine and requested to be named the Minister of Culture when he becomes the president and Bobi is positive about it.
“I decided to support Bobi Wine on a condition, I told him to give me a ministerial position when he becomes the President. I want to be a Minister of Culture and we are currently in talks with him. I expect to become the next Minister of Culture, I have to change my status too,” he said.
The cunning legislator advised people not to judge his decision because everyone wants to live a good life and he is not any different.
It is to this that the ‘Dimitiliya’ singer chose to join the ‘struggle’ so that he is on a close seat just in case Bobi Wine wins.
The legislators’ comments come just days after Democratic Party Vice President Fred Mukasa Mbidde also publically pledged his support for Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu in the 2021 general elections.
Mr Mbidde who also doubles as the DP chairperson for Masaka District, said he had already informed Mao about his decision who gave him a go ahead.
Mr Mbidde shared that he believes Mr Kyagulanyi is the only presidential candidate in the race who can end Mr Museveni’s 35-year rule.
“I am among the few parliamentary contestants who wish Mr Kyagulanyi well because most of the incumbents in Masaka are schemers who simply want his backing to retain their parliamentary seats other than making him win the presidency,” Mr Mbidde who is vying for the new Nyendo-Mukungwe parliamentary seat, said while officially launching his campaigns over weekend.
