People power breaks the record with over 2000 nominated
It is now over 2000 people nominated which shown its progress in forth coming elections.
This is extra ordinary and new in the history of Uganda
Among the notable ones are Hon Kyagulanyi him self who is going for the presidency.
Others are Al hajji Nasser Ntege Sebaggala who wants to be mayor. Sebaggala has ever been in this position.
Seya Nasser Sebagala
Others include Hon Ssegona, Latif Sebaggala among others.
This is a point of concern to the ruling party NRM. This always have the majority in parliament some thing likely to be different this time.
Firstly the party with numbers in parliament normally takes the biggest decisions. They can veto any motion they don’t like.
Secondly, the president can never be happy with such in the main house.
This means people power is likely to have more people in the elective politics. Even the current known opposition group has never made it like this before.
The question remains will this make a difference in 2021 elections.
This even in parliament is likely to be the case; It will be a challenge for president Museveni and for NRM to have less members.
People power is not a party
People power is not a party, It is a pressure group. Which makes it free for every party to come on.
The movement seeks to unite Ugandans. On issues such as ending human rights abuse, corruption and redefining the rule of law.
With a focus on young Ugandans as its agenda.
The movement was primarily sparked by civil unrest when President Museveni extended presidency.
In addition he announced plans to extend his third longest tenure in Africa by seeking re-election in 2021.
We note that Hon Kyagulanyi him self is a DP member. But elections are not won by words. Let us wait and see.
Lastly, the question is whether the people power politicians can manage the scientific elections.
We shall keep you posted.
