Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Bobi Wine was Tuesday morning successfully nominated to contest for President of Uganda.
The 38-year-old musician – turned politician is taking on the ultimate challenge against President Yoweri Museveni who is seeking to extend his tenure to 4 decades.

Bobi Wine’s nomination as had been projected, was not short of drama and chaos as police escorted him from his home in Magere, through the crowded streets of East Kampala.

Arriving over 30 minutes late at the nomination venue in Kambogo, Bobi Wine and his team were taken through a seamless process and was eventually declared a candidate by the Electoral Commission Chairman Justice Simon Byabakama.

His entourage included among others his wife Barbie Itungo, Lynn Zedriga, MPs Mathias Mpuuga, John Baptist Nambeshe, Asuman Basalirwa, Francis Zaake, as well as Nubian Lee, Joel Senyonyi and Nyanzi Fred Sentamu.

Speaking shortly after his nomination, Bobi Wine expressed confidence that his time had come to take over leadership of the country.
“Fellow Ugandans I tell you now that we will be free or dye trying to be free,” he roared.

In the lengthy speech, his voice breaking intermittently, Bobi Wine sought to address a number of issues including his own merit as a presidential candidate.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I come before you not as the most qualified or experienced candidate, but as most committed person to lead this liberation; to lead the people Uganda out of slavery,” he said.

“The past three years have been full of challenges but now I announce to you that we are launching the most critical phase in our struggle to liberate our country.”
“We are now closing the book of Lamentations and opening the book of Acts. It is time for action.”

The MP also sought to present himself as the best representative of the different marginalized groups of Ugandans in all regions of the country, ranging from unemployed youths in Buganda, to the poverty stricken residents of northern and eastern Uganda.
“I’m representing the health workers who are paid peanuts for doing incredible work,” he said.

“I am representing my mother, a nurse who had 10 children and died a miserable life because when she got an accident and was put in Mulago, she had to be there for an hour in a hospital she served for more than 20 years. I am here to speak for her even though she cannot speak for herself.”

Bobi Wine also promised among others to elevate the lives of the men and women in uniform by increasing their salaries and providing free education and health care for their children.
“If I become president, we will know what our classified budget does. The lowest solder or Police officer will earn 1 million shillings a month,” he said.
Bobi Wine said he will be unveiling more of his plans today as he launches his manifesto.

Bobi Wine was arrested by police shortly after his nomination and whisked away but we can confirm that he has been dropped at his home in Magere by Uganda Police.
He was brutally arrested amidst protests from his security detail and colleagues by armed security officers just minutes after being nominated as a presidential candidate for the 2021 general elections.

Before his arrest, Bobi Wine had told journalists that as a presidential candidate, he was representing the poor and vulnerable Ugandans who are being stepped on by a few people in power.

“What we have observed today is a new beginning which is going to see the end of dictatorship that has crippled our country. I want to tell Mr Museveni that since  you have failed to control your greed for power, our generation is here to save you from yourself,” Bobi Wine said.
“I come before you as the most committed person to lead this liberation.Fellow Ugandans, I present myself as a servant, not a boss. We are going to run a people-centered government,” he added.

Bobi wine is expected to launch his party manifesto today at the party headwaters in Kamwokya
