Oppinion: MUBS Election Last nail in the less effort Wave Politics



MUBS students’ have refereed their aspiring leaders by the content of their manifestation and not their political inclination.

    Personally I think that the elite class mere wanted to use the wave of fame of Kyagulanyi since he had mobilised the fan base as a musician so it would be easy to use the same musician to wave off the Junta.
