DP disowns singer Walukagga over NRM rallies

Mathias Walukaga

Democratic Party (DP) says it has ceased any dealings with Kadongo-kamu singer, Mathias Walukagga, for appearing on a rally organised by the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM].

Walukagga was spotted performing at rallies of NRM candidates; Patrick Kintu Kisekulo [Kyotera LC V Chairperson] and and Rachael Nakitende, Woman MP seat, in Mutukula Kakuuto Sub County in Kyotera district.

The singer was invited by his friend Haruna Kyeyune Kasolo, the Micro- Finance State Minister and Kisekulo.

Apparently, even General Salim Saleh, the Commander of Operation Wealth Creation who sponsors the artiste’s Savings and Credits Cooperative Society asked Walukagga to perform.

Dick Lukyamuzi, a member of the Democratic Party National Executive Committee, says Walukagga will not be allowed to stand on DP party ticket for the Masaka mayoral seat in the 2021 elections.

Recently, Walukagga released a song title “Kogikwatako” [don’t dare touch it-the constitution], a DP slogan invented to protect the constitution.

“We want him to compensate for using our slogan “Kogikwatako” to release a song that has made him a lot of money,” Lukyamuzi said.

In 2016, Walukagga performed at rallies of Masaka Municipality MP, Mathias Mpuuga, Florence Namayanja, Bukoto East, Mary Babirye Kabanda, Masaka woman MP and Masaka LC V Chairperson, Jude Mbabaali.
