The Minister for Kampala Capital City Authority Beti Kamya has said Bobi Wine stands no chance against President Museveni in the 2021 Presidential elections.
Bobi Wine, 36, is the Kyadondo East legislator and leader of People Power Movement. The musician turned politician recently announced that he will take on President Museveni, in power for three decades in the next general elections.
“On behalf of the people of Uganda, I am challenging you (Museveni) to a free and fair election in 2021,” Bobi, real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, said in July.
Kamya, 63, has predicted that Bobi Wine cannot defeat Museveni but is better off as a member of Parliament.
“Bobi Wine’s presence can only be felt in Kampala and that is with the unemployed youth. The employed youth are not with him. I know this,” Kamya, who came fifth in the 2011 presidential elections, with 52,782 votes, told Simon Njala Kagwa on the NBS Morning Breeze on Wednesday.
Asked whether she can tell how much he would get if his name appeared on the ballot paper, Kamya said, “(Former Premier Amama) Mbabazi was a force. He had money and all, he was mature politically and had been with Museveni for a long time. If Mbabazi can get 100,000 votes, I bet Bobi would get less than. And that is my logical and scientific thinking.”
She added: Bobi Wine is my friend, I don’t want him to think this is personal. We are just talking politics, but he can’t get half of what Mbabazi got.”
