Uganda: Singer Ronald Mayinja Makes U-Turn Again to Release Song Asking Museveni to Go

Nile Post News (Kampala)

Singer Ronald Mayinja has once again released a song in which he asks President Museveni to leave power.

Last year, Mayinja released "Akalulu Kako Mzee (the vote is yours old man) which became the 2021 campaign theme song for the NRM presidential candidate in which he asked the public to vote for President Museveni.

However, the signer has now stormed the studios in what seems a U-turn to compose another song asking that Museveni should leave power.

In the new song dubbed 'Abantu Baaganye', Mayinja now claims that he has been traversing the country to preach the Museveni gospel but he has been met with resistance and hatred.

Mayinja says that marketing Museveni has proved impossible because people are tired and want someone else. His effort has earned him hatred.

He says he is taking a risk to sing the song because it will bring him trouble but he must say the truth.

"I used to be a good supporter, and have been travelling around to preach your message but the people have refused, to be certain they have refused they also hated me for it. I ask you mzee to find ways to leaving power because they have said they want another leader," Mayinja sang.

Mayinja said that people are tired of hospitals without drugs and roads that are for just a few people. He adds that Ugandans are suffering in abject poverty and some have had to run abroad for survival in harsh environments in mid-east.

Just in December 2020, Mayinja released a song in which he lavished praise on Museveni, citing that he has been better than all presidents including Obote and Amin.

Mayinja said that the country has no one better than Museveni that can be presented.
