Bobi Wine has refuted claims that he has pulled out of the 2021 Presidential race.
Kyadondo East MP, Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has refuted claims that he has pulled out of the Presidential race for the upcoming 2021 general elections.
In recent weeks, a lot of information has been circulating on different social media platforms indicating that Bobi Wine has changed his plans about standing against President Museveni in 2021 Presidential race.
Many online sources particularly stressed to the fact that the Legislator felt unprepared for 2021 and that he had rather set his eyes on instead the 2026 general elections.
Also, they hinted on the coronavirus outbreak that has made it hard for Bobi Wine to campaign like he would have wished as a way of creating awareness to the public about his political ambitions.
As a result, they pinpointed that the Legislator still needed time to build his ‘People Power’ movement even further before registering it officially as a political party for the 2026 general elections.
However, in the wake of events, the People Power initiator has rubbished these allegations insisting that he is more than determined to stand for Presidency come next year.
Kyagulanyi who was first to regard the rumours as strategic propaganda said that his critics are just formulating ways to put off his fans but all their work is in vain because he is on a close look.
He said that despite increasing plans to put him, together with his people power colleagues off track, they are more than focused on achieving their goals.
“All these social media reports are wrong and false. It’s a strategic propaganda campaign to take People Power off the course but remedies were already in place,” Kyagulanyi said in an interview with journalists on Monday before condemning the increasing acts of racism happening globally.
“We as People Power, we condemn all acts of racism more so within the human race such as the unfortunate incidents that have happened in America.”
Bobi Wine first announced his desire to stand for Presidency last year in July 2019. The musician turned politician has since turned out to become a political threat to the long-serving President, Museveni.
While holding an interview last year, the singer mentioned that his inspiration to run for Presidency comes from the fact that he feels a lot is lacking from the present regime in terms of leadership.
“We concluded that we should challenge this regime as a generation,” Bobi Wine said in one interview last year while responding to a question about his love for politics.
