Ugandan singer asks Museveni for Ksh. 135 million for song


By Annette Amondi

Ugandan singer Richard Kawesa is demanding UGsh 5 billion (ksh. 135 million) from President Museveni for election song.

Kawesa says he was contracted by Museveni’s team to write the song another rap for the 2011 presidential elections which he was never paid for.

The singer wrote a letter to Uganda’s state house demanding for his cash but he is yet to be paid.

Museveni’s team has confirmed they received the letter but insisted that their lawyers would look into it.

Museveni released the song ahead of a tough election against bitter rival Kizza Besigye. The Ugandan strongman used the song to woo young voters to rally behind his re-election.
