“Ndabirawa” hitmaker Kalifah Aganaga(Sadat Mukiibi) is not satisfied with Uganda Musicians Association(UMA)Electoral Commission. The singer claims that the commission deliberately chose to hold elections when they were not prepared. To him, the commission is not ready enough.
“If they were not ready to organize elections, they would have accepted and pushed it to a later time. Imagine they don’t even have a roadmap for us to prepare…,” he said.
His major concern is about the online elections that he thinks will hinder many from not participating because they are used to ballot papers and do not have data to use the system.
“I do not know why they organized online elections yet the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer an issue. As Africans, we are not used to online voting but ballot papers. Most Ugandans are not educated enough to use phones and the data is so costly. Some of the voters may not get data to vote…,” he said.
Aganaga joins King Saha and other candidates that have since criticized the commission’s decision on online polls. The UMA elections are slated for 23rd May.
