Fresh from Dubai after the botched UMA elections, King Saha is bullish about his chances.

With the elections pushed from 6th June to 28th June, Saha says the postponement has given him chance to harness his voters. He is confident of a landslide.

Speaking shortly after landing at Entebbe Airport on Monday, he notably said, “I am already thinking about whether I should contest for a second term as UMA president. This victory is in the basket,” he said.

If the multitudes that thronged Entebbe Airport to welcome King Saha were actual Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) voters, it would be easy to take King Saha on his word.

They paralyzed traffic and had a procession from Entebbe to Kampala. Along the way, Saha, draped in the national flag had mini addresses and some in the crowds offered to pray for him ahead of the elections.  

“Your prayers are not in vain. We are soon getting to the crossing line,” he vowed.

King Saha is one of the three contestants tussling it out for the Uganda Musicians Association’s top office.

The voting process was stopped because of irregularities in the system and the singer claimed the incumbent who was also a contestant, Cindy Sanyu was rigging.

He later took a break in Dubai.  “I have taken a break to Dubai. I will come back and campaign again,” he vowed.

King Saha and Cindy Sanyu are the top contenders for the top office of the association.
