Former presidential candidate, Maureen Kyalya, says she too will run for President in 2021 general elections.
In an interview with Daily Monitor, Kyalya described as “crazy” Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, her possible rival who has already declared his presidential bid.
According to Kyalya, Bobi Wine is only challenging the Buganda King Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II so that he is the one worshiped.
“I think he is crazy. Bobi Wine is trying to start a war that will raise a fundamental question,” Kyalya told Monitor.
She said Bobi Wine is taking on the Kabaka for superiority in Buganda which has significant implications for destroying or suspending the Buganda Kingdom.
“I doubt he has even thought about what his fellow Baganda will lose from that,” she said.
According to Kyalya, the head of state for Uganda is supposed to be the Kabaka of Buganda.
She said the President is supposed to be the Prime Minister per the 1962 constitution.
“Uganda was set up like UK and that is not just politically but a fundamental spiritual and cultural balance situation because Uganda is not an ordinary country. Bobi Wine wants to change this truth.”
On her presidential bid, Kyalya said she will register he own political party in July this year.
“I will stand in 2021, God willing,” she told the newspaper.
When she last contested in 2016, Kyalya managed only 40,598 Votes representing (0.44%). President Museveni won with 5,617,503 votes representing 60.75 percent, followed by Dr Kiiza Besigye who garnered 3,270,290 votes representing 35.37 in the controversial election.
