Joseph Mabirizi speaks out on running again for Presidency in the coming 2021 general elections

2016 Presidential Elections aspirant Joseph Elton Mabirizi has confirmed that he will contest for the presidency again come 2021.

The Former aspirant who explained his willingness to stand again said that none of the current presidents to be has put the focus on institutional representation, something he identifies will be key in his manifesto.

“Nobody has initiated the procedure to get all these people together and citizens should not expect that at all. I stand for institutional representation and none of the aspirants has come up with that, that is why I am coming back,” Mabirizi implied.

Joseph Mabirizi finished last of the eight presidential candidates in 2016 general elections with 24,498 votes equivalent to 0.25 per cent of the total electorate.

Mabirizi who is yet to hold a single consultation this time round will be determined to do a lot better than last time. He is however not planning to hold consultative meetings arguing that he did many of them in 2016.

I am going to stand as a presidential candidate in 2021, but I want people to know that not everyone has to go for consultations.

In 2016, I went through this exercise, I am not doing it again this year.

“I have been around doing several things. I have schools and companies I run,” Mabirizi added in response to the question about his whereabouts.

Besides, Mabirizi remained adamant when he was asked whether the opposition could be willing to parade a single presidential candidate.

He said that it would be very hard to convince the opposition into that direction although it would be more industrious in seeing a change in government.

Mabirizi further added that is more than determined this time round to see a change in government because the current leaders have run out ideas.

He said that the people are stuck with a government that ran out of ideas and that is why he is here again.
