The Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) elections have been rescheduled until further notice. The electoral commission of the association confirmed this.
Initially, UMA held online voting on June 6, 2022, but the voting was contested by one of the presidential candidates, King Saha, who stormed the tally center with his lawyers, claiming that the voting had to be halted due to massive technical rigging.
Following that, the voting was halted.
UMA board members met and decided to switch voting methods from online to ballot ticking, with a deadline of elections June 28, 2022, but more complaints poured in.
Voting was to take place only in Kampala, at the expense of other artists from outside the city. The upcountry artists disagreed, citing unfairness.
