55 Candidate to Contest for Presidency

This might be the most interesting presidential campaign race in our history. We have never had such a time when such a huge number of candidates via for a single political office. All candidates are promising to unseat President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who has led Uganda for over 25 years now.

Uganda is to follow in the footsteps of countries which normally have scores of presidential candidates. At the moment, more than 55 people have already picked nomination forms from the electoral commission which they will return on October 25th 2010.

However, doubt can be cast on some candidates; we have so many comedians like Paddy Bitama of Amarula Family who are certain to drop out of the race any time soon. As it has always been, the race is still between the current president and Dr Kizza Besigye, the old time friend, turned, old time enemy.

Uganda elections are soon approaching and many of us are not sure whether to be happy or sad since we can not predict what the scenes which will characterize the elections time before and after.
