Museveni tells Bobi Wine: 2021 Elections will prove to you that Ugandans love me (Bosco) more than you.

President Museveni has told top presidential competitor, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine that the forthcoming 2021 elections will be a true indicator of how much Ugandans love his governance.

Museveni made the remarks via a message posted on his prominent social media page. He said that he is looking forward to the elections to prove all his doubters wrong. 

Museveni who was first to pinpoint the Kyadondo East Legislator, a top competitor for the seat said that the elections will prove to Kyagulanyi that Ugandans love the National Resistance Movement (NRM) governance more than anything else.

“Whether Ugandans want Bobi Wine or “Bosco” (I am made to understand that means Museveni), that is a matter that will be settled early next year,” Museveni said.

This comes at a time when the NRM was declared victorious in the majority of the districts in the recently concluded National Youth Village elections scooping up to 48,550 (78.88%) village youth council chairperson positions.

About a New Vision article published on August 25, NRM topped the chart followed by the independents who came second taking 9,272 (15.06%) village youth council chairperson positions, followed by the National Unity Platform (NUP) which emerged third with 1,447 (2.35%) positions. 

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) came to the fourth position after bagging 1,182 (1.92%) chairperson positions.

The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) won 538 (0.87%) youth chairperson positions, the Democratic Party (DP) 536 (0.87%), the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) 15 (0.02%), the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) five (0.01%) positions while the Justice Forum (JEEMA) won five (0.01%).

This according to Museveni was an indicator of where the people’s love is. 

The President who referred to the village elections as a semi-final explained that NRM won at all the three levels including the disabled, the elderly and the youths without too much preparation.

‘’However, recently we had semi-finals in the form of elections of the disabled, the elderly and the youth. Who won the matches in the 3 matches?. Bosco won without too much preparation. I am looking forward to the finals. Greetings to your foreign backers who fear a strong Uganda. Too bad for them,’’ Museveni added.
