Bobi Wine has once again made it clear that they will do everything possible to ensure that the 2021 elections are not rigged.
The National Unity Platform (NUP) party presidential flag bearer, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has once again made it clear that they will do everything possible to ensure that the 2021 elections are not rigged.
Over the years, opposition presidential aspirants notably, the former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) president, Kizza Besigye in the 2016 and 2011 elections who came out to cite President Museveni for always rigging elections.
With only weeks to the coming 2021 elections, many Ugandans have also already come out on social media and alleged that elections in Uganda are a waste of time and money because they will be rigged.
However, while responding to the allegations during his Monday campaign in Kyenjojo, the NUP presidential flag bearer said that they have put up structures to guard against any forms of rigging.
Bobi Wine was first to remind his voters about the various by-elections when he sided with opposition candidates to victory against the ruling NRM party.
He pinpointed the Arua legislative elections in 2018 when he sided with the then independent candidate Kassiano Wadri to beat 11 others including NRM’s Nusura Tiperu.
“We are a lot of young people. These people can not rig an election, that is too much. I was in jail when the people of Arua went to the polls, the candidate was also in jail with me. Didn’t we win? Now what are you telling me?,” Bobi Wine questioned.
Meanwhile, on the same day, the NUP boss also toured areas of Kyegegwa district ending his day in Fort Portal where he called upon his voters to come out in big numbers and vote for him in the January presidential elections.
On the same rallies, he refuted claims from President Museveni of opposition groups being funded by foreigners. Bobi Wine said that Ugandans are funding his campaigns with fuel and other essentials.
“We thank you so much you who give us money because we don’t have money. (President) Museveni is saying that the people who fund us are whites, but this campaign is for Ugandans and this money that you give us is what we use to fuel our cars,” he added.
