Self proclaimed ghetto Gladiator singer Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu commonly known as Bobi Wine has been successfully nominated for Kyadondo East parliamentary seat.
Bobi Wine was escorted by his wife and a crowd of his supporters.
The Kyadondo East parliamentary seat was declared vacant last month after Court of Appeal upheld High Court’s decision of nullifying Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)’s Apollo Kantinti’s election thus ruling against him in an election appeal.
The justices ruled that after a careful re-evaluation of the evidence on record, they have also come to a conclusion that it was not clear on who won the Kyadondo East constituency election since results from 9 polling stations were not included in the final tally.
In July last year, High Court Judge Isabirye Kaweesa nullified Kantinti’s election on grounds of non-compliance with several electoral guidelines under the Parliamentary Elections Act by the Electoral Commission.
NRM’s William Sitenda Sebalu sued Kantinti, the Electoral Commission and Wakiso district Returning Officer Sarah Bukirwa for conniving to commit several irregularities which affected the quality of the election in Kyadondo East in a substantial manner.
