By 2026, if we haven't removed Museveni from power, we will challenge him to a free and fair election- says Bobi Wine


Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine and leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP), has officially announced his intention to once again challenge President Museveni in the 2026 elections.

As of now, it remains uncertain whether President Museveni, who has held office for 38 years, will be seeking re-election. Bobi Wine made the announcement during an exclusive interview with CNN, emphasizing the importance of a free and fair electoral process in Uganda.

"My music opened my eyes and those of the masses, especially the youth, leading me into trouble. But it was good trouble. Music has always been my platform to communicate," stated Kyagulanyi, shedding light on the role his musical career played in his journey into politics.

The NUP leader highlighted his determination to challenge Museveni's long-standing rule, expressing his commitment to utilizing both moral and constitutional means to bring about change. "We will continue to challenge General Museveni through every available moral and constitutional means. By 2026, if we haven't removed him from power, we will challenge him to a free and fair election," he declared.

Despite acknowledging the risks associated with challenging an incumbent with such a lengthy tenure, Kyagulanyi remains unwavering in his mission. He stressed his commitment to opposing Museveni's regime through legal and moral avenues, aiming to garner international attention and support for the Ugandan people's democratic rights.

Kyagulanyi's overarching goal is to instigate positive change and create a more inclusive and transparent political landscape in Uganda. His transition from a beloved musician to a political force has not only captivated the nation but has also attracted global interest.
