Fake Rihanna to vie for MP seat in Uganda elections

Political aspirants in Uganda are using all tricks in the book to get the attention of potential voters in the upcoming general elections.

Generally, posters are  graced by the aspirant’s photo, usually smartly dressed and complete with a catchy slogan. However, in Uganda political aspirants have taken their campaign ‘tricks’ to another level.

For instance, American singer Rihanna is running for a representative post in the election. Well, she is the poster girl of Joan Nabukenya who is vying for the seat of District Woman MP..

Football genius Lionel Messi is also contesting in the same location. He is the poster boy of Charles Musisi who vying to be a town councilor.

Erick Mununuzi, who is aspiring to be the MP for Kisementi Municipality, doesn’t mince his words in his campaign posters. He bluntly says as it is, “It’s time for someone else to eat the money.”

Another politician is literally begging for votes, posing on his knees and asking people to vote for him.

Doreen Nyanjura, who is gunning for the women councilor seat, has vowed in her posters to defend her constituents from aliens. Who knew there are aliens in Uganda?
