Popular Ugandan musician, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, better known by his stage name Bobi Wine has revealed his intentions to contest for Kyadondo East Member of Parliament.
Bobi Wine while appearing NTV Uganda’s ‘Akawungeezi’ news on Wednesday evening, revealed that he was considering standing in the by-election.
“I am considering joining the race for MP, Kyadondo East, and it’s up to the people of Kyadondo to vote for me,” Bobi Wine said.
“I’m will not be standing for this post as a politician, but as a leader. Many of my songs send a message out there but I think it’s high time I joined Parliament to ensure all the things I sing about can be implemented,” he added.
Bobi Wine has in the recent months been seen rubbing shoulders with big politicians like former FDC Presidential Candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye and several Members of Parliament.
