The newly elected Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) is scheduled to be sworn in on the floor of Parliament on Tuesday.
Customarily, the swearing is the first business on the floor at 2:00pm and the new legislator will later be ushered in to his seat at the independence members’ corner.
In a message to his fans on Monday, Bobi said after swearing in there would be be a grand party at Kasangati grounds commonly referred to by Dr. Besigye supporters as Benghazi.
“Join me for the inauguration at the Parliament of the Republic of Uganda at 2pm then later on at Kasangati Saza grounds for general celebrations filled with music and fun,” he said in a brief message on social media.
On 29th last month, Bobi won the parliamentary seat in a landslide victory; sweeping 77.7 percent of the votes. He defeated the candidates of two political giants; President Museveni and Dr. Besigye as NRM and FDC combined failed to raise even 20 percent of votes.
Kyadondo east parliamentary seat felt vacant when the Court of Appeal threw out FDC’s Apollo Katinti on grounds of electoral malpractice
