Multi-award-winning recording artiste Eddy Kenzo has disclosed that he will not campaign for colleague Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine or any other politician in the 2021 general elections.
Kenzo made the revelation while addressing journalists on Thursday in Kampala.
Kenzo who met President Yoweri Museveni at State House Entebbe early this week, said he resolved to keep away from politics.
“Mr. Kyagulanyi is my friend but I will never campaign for him again. I will support him and vote for him but won’t campaign for him. I will never jump onto any platform to convince people for him unless he has himself convinced people of what he is capable of doing,” the ‘sitya loss’ singer said.
“I campaigned for him (Bobi Wine) in Kyadondo but for President, I won’t. He must convince people he is the best. I will not campaign for any other person. I am a person who must bring together people.”
In 2011 general elections, Kenzo was among the local artistes who campaigned for President Museveni.
On the issue of meeting the President after winning a musical award in USA, the singer said, “I don’t think I made a wrong decision and I am so blessed. I thank God for it. I met him and we exchanged many things. I celebrate it (meeting) as an achievement.”
“I am not ready to fight the government. I can’t be against a person that God chose. He is the one who knows why He is in that place. I don’t think am ready to fight with the state. If you respect God, you must respect the leader and if you respect parents, respect elders. I could not resist the call because he is the leader of this country. He is a parent and his authority was given by God,” he added.
