Talent manager-turned-politician Derrick Orone who was kicked out of Parliament after court ruled that he violated the electoral campaign process has bounced back.

The Rydim Empire boss, 34, who represents Gogonyo constituency, was declared unopposed in the byelection after the independent candidate Issa Taligola, withdrew his candidature from the race before the National Chairman of NRM, President Yoweri Museveni.

“In the interest of the party and in respect of your duty as Chairman, I hereby step down,” said Taligola before the mammoth crowd that gathered in the constituency

President Museveni, on his part, told the gathering that he had put together his children, talked to them and they have accepted to step down

The other candidates, Opolot of FDC and Okoboi of NUP, had earlier announced their withdrawal from the race.

The Kampala Sun has learnt that following the decision, a visibly relieved Orone has vowed to throw a party next week in Kampala for his fans and musicians who travelled to canvass votes for him during the re-run.
