As we fast approach elections, singer Ronald Mayinja has revealed why he quit vying for the Gomba parliamentary seat in 2021.

While Speaking to Matooke Republic on a phone interview, Mayinja who is currently a student at Makerere University pursing a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science disclosed that following a ground survey in the constituency he intended to represent, he found out that he needed a lot of money to win the seat.

 “When I went to the ground I released that politics needs a lot of money and I did not want to be like many politicians who have lost their properties to money lenders after using the money to fund campaigns. So I just decided not to stand and look for the money first,” Mayinja said.

He revealed that he’s going to use the coming five years to beef up his political capital and by 2026; he will be ready to challenge anyone.
