Bobi Wine nominated, gets security detail


The Electoral Commission has Tuesday duly nominated Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Bobi Wine is now the official presidential candidate for National Unity Platform (NUP) party.

The ceremony was presided over by EC chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama.

Byabakama criticised Bobi Wine for failing to keep time.


“Hon Kyagulanyi, you were expected here at exactly 10am. Now it’s 10 minutes to 11am. Please endeavour to respect the set timelines during this exercise,” Byabakama said.

After nomination, Bobi Wine was given a car and security detail to aid his campaign trail.

Speaking to media, Bobi Wine paid tribute to founders of the struggle like Paul Ssemwogerere and Kizza Besigye.

“They started the struggle. Now I am here to finish it,” he said.

He called upon Ugandans to join the struggle to do away with the NRM regime.
