Veteran singer Joanita Kawalya has expressed concern about the ongoing battle of words between the candidates in the Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) elections that are slated for May 23.
Talking to journalists, she advised that a seminar should be organised to equip them with leadership skills.
“I have heard so much of abuses from both sides. A leader is supposed to have self-control and know when to talk and when not to. As a leader, you have to be a unifying factor, not one who fans fights. They all need a leadership seminar for them to behave as leaders,” she said.
The Jim Wange singer appealed to the UMA electoral commission to organise transparent elections in order not to cause chaos.
On May 16, King Saha claimed that Kawalya had endorsed him for the UMA presidency as had many veteran singers.
In response to this, she revealed that Saha had personally reached out to her.
