Controversial singer Ronald Mayinja has made a U-turn once again and released a new song titled ‘Abantu Bagaanye’ asking President Museveni to leave power.
Mayinja who released “Akalulu Kako Mzee” (the vote is yours old man) during the 2021 elections campaign while campaigning fot the president now seems to have changed his mind again.
In the song Akalulu Kako Mzee, Mayinja applauded Museveni for being better than all presidents Uganda has ever had including Obote and Amin noting that no one can do better than him.
However, in the new song, Mayinja now confesses that after moving and doing consultations across the country preaching the Museveni gospel, he has realized that people have rejected his and they told him that they are tired and want someone else.
“I used to be a good supporter, and have been traveling around to preach your message but the people have refused, to be certain they have refused they even hated me for it. I ask you Mzee to find ways to leaving power because they have said they want another leader,” Mayinja said in the new song.
In the same song, Mayinja said that people are tired of empty hospitals without drugs and roads that are made for a few sections of people.
”After 40 years of your rule, Ugandans are tired of suffering in endless poverty. Some are running abroad for survival where they end up being tortured especially in the Middle East,” he added in the song.
In 2020, Mayinja crossed to National Resistance Movement (NRM) saying he was tired of the endless insults from National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters who had labelled him a greedy and money-minded hypocrite.
After quitting NUP, Mayinja further disclosed that he is going to work around the clock to convince other NUP members to join NRM.
Mayinja by then said, “I’m going to come up with so many projects which will help me dialogue with other opposition members, especially those I have left in NUP to join this side.
“I will not be taking them to President Museveni to get money but I will just convince them to join the party for their own good because NRM is peaceful compared to other political parties”.
