Bobi Wine says he will hold rallies – EC is fooling us: Bobi Wine says he will hold rallies – EC is fooling us: Stop fooling us, Bobi Wine to the Electoral Commission. He insists that for him he will hold rallies for the forth coming general elections where he is contesting for the president.
We have to hold rallies. Which elections have you ever seen with out rallies. Just tell us that you have your hidden agenda as he rushed out to the EC.
Bobi Wine Insists
We have to move district to district holding rallies, talking to our people and supporters. There is no reason for scientific elections. What is scientific? What do you mean by that? He asked EC.
Bobi said this yesterday while addressing the press at the People Power Headquarters at Kamwokya.
He said holding rallies is with in the law. Section 21 (2) of the Presidential Elections Act, 2005. It stipulates “Every candidate may hold campaigns in any part of Uganda in accordance with the existing law”
For EC we can not hold rallies because we shall be breaking the COVID-19 guidelines. Therefore aspirants will use radio, television and online media platforms to reach out to the electorate.
EC Boss says
The electoral commission boss Justice Simon Byabakama issued a new road map for the 2021 elections. He insisted that the EC is mindful of the ministry of health guidelines. So they can not do contrary to that.
But to the presidential hopeful the electoral commission is not doing this in good faith. There are countries with more big numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths but they are holding rallies.
You can not tell us that this is not a president Museveni’s idea. He knows how popular we are, he can not win us.
Let us wait and see whether rallies will be allowed or we shall have scientific ones.
