Singer Sadat Mukiibi alias Aganaga has stung the National Unity Platform party and their principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu over what he calls a selective vetting process.
Although it is not yet clear whether Aganaga was indeed denied a ticket for MP Rubaga South, sources inside NUP confirm the singer will not be awarded a flag over his unclear dealings with the ruling party.
Now Aganaga claims that Bobi Wine and NUP are limiting voters’ choices by engaging in a very short-sighted vetting process.
“They are not practicing the democracy they preach. They should let us meet the voters who should make a choice. This vetting process is not democratic,” Aganaga claimed.
Aganaga claimed that he and several artistes have promoted Bobi Wine even before NUP and now that he has made some name in politics, he has started hobnobbing with seasoned politicians and asking for the others to prove their role to the struggle.
“The struggle is us, we campaigned and promoted Bobi Wine even before NUP. I personally went to Kyadondo and sang during his rallies, but now I see he has brought some politicians closers, those are the ones he says are in the struggle,” he said.
According to Aganaga, his subscription to NUP is not of any good.
“Lumbuye Fred Kajubi is the reason I am leaving NUP. He posted a picture of Joseph Mayanja, Djacob Omutuuze, and myself and claimed we are moles,” he said.
According to Aganaga, the NUP has abandoned its principles and its fans.
“The NUP is so young, they should not start things like vetting to spoil the ground,” he said.
Recently, a video leaked in which a person with Aganaga’s voice was singing a song praising President Museveni and calling upon voters not to vote “fala Bobi Wine”
The song titled Kiboko remix caused a stir in NUP but the singer denies it was his.
