As the sun sets on the two-day Presidential Nominations at the Kyambogo University Sports Grounds, Kabuleta Kiiza Joseph brings the number of duly nominated Presidential Candidates in the 2021 General Elections to 11.
A renowned sports media personality and preacher, Kabuleta Kiiza Joseph was declared a Presidential Candidate at exactly 3:38 pm by the Electoral Commission Chair, Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama. This was at Kyambogo University Sports Grounds where the Presidential Nomination is ongoing until 5:00 pm.
While speaking to the press immediately after his nomination, promised to work for a Uganda that works for all, not some few privileged people. Kabuleta spoke a lot about financial liberation, the major focus of his campaign, and trivialized the government’s efforts in the COVID-19 fight as a politicized affair.
Kabuleta now joins incumbent Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, former spy chief Tumukunde Henry Kakurugu, former UPDF army commander Mugisha Muntu Gregg, musician-turned-politician Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu, Mayambala Willy, Amuriat Oboi Patrick, 24-year old Katumba John, Nobert Mao, evangelist Mwesigye Fred, and Kalembe Nancy Linda the only female in the 2021 Presidential race
