Former President of the Uganda Musicians Association, Sophie Gombya has cautioned politicians against going toe to toe with anybody that is backed by the National Unity Pltaform (NUP).
Sophie resigned as Uganda Musicians Association President in July last year to contest as Kampala Central Woman Councilor as an independent after failing to secure the National Unity Platform flag bearer card.
She went on to lose the election to Mavis Nakitende who was contesting with the backing of the Bobi Wine led National Unity Platform party whose symbol is the “Umbrella”.
In her words, Sophie Gombya said that she didn’t completely lose because she came second and warned people about the “Umbrella”.
“I didn’t completely lose because I was the second but the moment you see an umbrella symbol, just run away. The umbrella wave almost took out everyone,”Sophie Gombya
The artist also took the opportunity to thank everyone who voted for her during the campaigns.
Asked what her next move would be, she said besides performing at weddings and introduction ceremonies her political journey has just started. “There is no turning back now. I’ve started my political journey and be sure to see me in 2026.”
