Shortly After being endorsed by Bebe Cool to contest For Uganda Musicians Association ( UMA) presidential post, Maurice Kirya has quit the race.
Maurice came out and explained his decision to quit the race for UMA presidential race after few weeks of his endorsement as UMA presidential candidate.
Maurice said that he is out of the country and that thought he would not act quick and return for nomination process after failing to book early flight and COVID-19 protocols in Germany and chose to withdraw from the race.
“To my fellow Ugandan musicians, my interest in joining the race for UMA President has regrettably come a little too late for my team and I as stupilated by UMA Electoral Commission guidelines.
I’m out of the country (Uganda) and thought I would act quick and get back ready for tomorrow’s (Monday) nomination process but unfortunately due to Covid-19 protocols, it hasn’t been possible. I can’t have an early flight as earlier projected.
Therefore, it’s with a heavy heart that I have decided to withdraw my application for the UMA Presidency because I would have preferred to represent myself, to listen to my fellow artists and fellow candidates in person.
I will however continue working with artists and contribute to the development of our Ugandan music industry as I always have.
I look forward to working with whoever will be our new UMA President and from the bottom of my heart, I wish them a good term in office.”,Maurice posted
