The Electoral Commission (EC) cleared People Power custodian Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine to go ahead with his planned consultation meetings as long as it is okay with the Uganda police.
the EC chairperson, Simon Byabakama made the announcement in a press briefing to journalists on Tuesday morning.
Bobi Wine is among 20 other presidential hopefuls who have been cleared for the consultation exercise.
Among those cleared include; Former presidential aspirant Elton Joseph Mbairizi, Apostle Ben Israel Sseninde, Timothy Mugerwa, Bob Paul Akileng, Steven Kaweesa, and Ambrose Kyomukama.
Also cleared are: Joseph Mwambazi, John Herbert Nkangabwa, Fred Mwesigye, Tunawooza Makoma, Charles Mutaasa Kafeero, and Dr. Moses Amin.
“Many people are still coming in, even right now some are waiting in my office to give us their documents so that they are cleared, so you see, that shows you that many are still joining the list,” Byabakama said of the huge number of aspirants.
“We know that the EC is the institution responsible for overseeing and organizing elections. We had planned to see them but they also invited us to have a conversation. We decided that we are going to reschedule the program for our consultations. We shall write to the Electoral Commission and also write to the police,” he said.
