The Born-Again musician’s executive elections flop

Reports reaching our gossip desk reveal that the Born-Again musician executive elections that happened over the weekend at National Theatre flopped.

The elections of a national executive body of the Federation of Gospel Artists of Uganda (FGAU) flopped due to lack of quorum.

Only two of the ten affiliates of the Uganda National Association of Gospel Artists (UNAGA) and Heart Beat Association turned up for the elections with only 26 gospel artists from the whole country.

The federation’s constitution required that all associations of stakeholders be represented during the election which was not the case. Despite the lack of quorum however, the federation proceeded with the election as chaired by Betty Muwanguzi.

Members raised a number of issues which they thought could explain the failure of affiliates to turn up for the election. Levixone pointed out that the federation had not adequately mobilized the association and sensitized them about the vision, mission, and objectives of the federation.

They later on decided to institute an executive committee for six months. Denis Laneka was elected president unchallenged which left Betty Muwanguzi totally displeased. She actually absconded from voting.

Below are the people that took on new roles in the federation:

PRESIDENT – Denis Lanek (Saint Lanek)
VICE PRESIDENT- Kaye Wisdom
GENERAL SECRETARY- Akashaba Crispa Ruta
ASS. GENERAL SECRETARY Hum Kay
NATIONAL TREASURER- Wamala Henry
