Local artist Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known by his stage name as Bobi Wine has been nominated to contest for the Kyadondo East Parliament seat.
He was nominated by Electoral Commission Returning Officer, Mr Francis Nkurunziza on Wednesday at Kyadondo, county headquarters in Kasangati, Wakiso District.
He was in the company of his wife Barbara Intungo also known as Barbie, fellow singers Ronald Mayinja, Mr Samuel Walter Lubega of Democratic Party (DP) among other supporters.
Bobi, who is standing on an independent ticket, will also address his first rally at Wampeewo grounds later today as he officially kicks off his campaigns ahead of the Kyadondo East by-election that will be held on June 26.
Bobi showed interest for the seat after it fell vacant when the Court of Appeal nullified the election of Kyadondo East MP Apollo Kantinti and ordered fresh elections.
