“Robert Kyagulanyi persuaded me to join the party but he failed to give me a party ticket. We thought he would openly welcome us but he ignored us,” he said.
Katongole Omutongole is not the fist media personality to be denied a NUP ticket. The longest serving Dembe FM presenter Ahimbisibwe Jacob popularly known as Jacob Omutuuze was denied a NUP ticket as well.
Other celebrities including Jose Chameleone, Kalifah Aganaga and others were denied National Unity Platform (NUP) tickets simply because they are lacking potential to lead the respective electorates.
Many musicians mistakenly think NUP must give them tickets on account of being fellow musicians and friends with Robert Kyagulanyi. They should know that politics is a completely different game all together.
National Unity Platform is now one of the essential institution of democracy. It’s an organised group of people contesting elections in order to hold power in government. Even though Bobi Wine is the NUP leader, he cannot just select any one he feels like. It’s not a family business. Everything is decided upon accordingly.
