A new survey conducted by a credible elections polls watchdog has showed that the National Unity Platform party of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine stands a higher chance of unseating President Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni.
The survey which was conducted for the past two weeks showed that NUP flag bearer Bobi Wine who is wildly popular throughout the country, has a mass support of 72% of the total 15 million vote, followed by the incumbent Tibuhaburwa with 19%, while the rest of the candidates split the remaining 9%.
A huge percentage of respondents pointed out that they need change in their lives because they feel left out by Museveni’s 35 years in power. That’s why they are so determinedly throwing their support behind Kyagulanyi.
Being a youthful and charismatic contender with an appealing background, Bobi Wine finds himself commanding much youth support in a country which constitutes a young population: with 70 percent of the country (45 million people) being between the 18-35 age group.
With less than 24 days before Ugandans go to the polls (on January 14), Kyagulanyi is the major challenger to the elderly President Museveni.
