Bobi Wine: I may be president the next time I address Parliament

National Unity Platform (NUP) leader and Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine says he could be president the next time he address Parliament.

On March 11, Bobi Wine made his first statement before Parliament in four months.

Bobi Wine returned to Parliament on Wednesday after four months of political activity.

He was one of the 11 presidential candidates in the 2021 race.

He polled 35 per cent of the votes to come second after incumbent Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni who won the election with 58 per cent.

Bobi Wine had challenged Museveni’s reelection in the Supreme Court but withdrew his petition over alleged bias on the side of the judges.

He has since called on his supporters — the so-called public court — to engage in peaceful protests.

The singer-turned-politician recently claimed he had won the election with 54 per cent.

Concluding his lengthy speech, Bobi Wine said he was “not sure how many more times I will be able to address this Parliament as MP.”

“Hopefully,” he added, “the next time I address this house, I will be President.”

Uganda next goes to the polls in 2026.
