Anatalia Oze, VJ Junior, Jonathan Jaxta, all lost as Mr Mosh and Masembe Erimia registered wins in the recently concluded Local government polls.

As it has been witnessed in past months, several artistes, deejays, celebrities and media personalities stood for different political positions.

The wave of active involvement in politics among the creatives is heavily attributed to Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert a.k.a Bobi Wine’s inspiration by running for presidency.

Bobi might have lost in his ploy but a few artistes registered wins in the Local Government elections which were held on Wednesday 20th January 2020.

Most notably, Galaxy FM and Spark TV presenter Ssendi Mosh Afrikan a.k.a Mr Mosh won the seat as Lord Councillor 5 in Makindye East III, Ggaba and Kansanga.

Mosh’s win can be added to that of Hillary Kiyaga a.k.a Dr. Hilderman who is now a Member of Parliament representing the people of Mawokota North.

Former Bukedde TV presenter Omubi Masembe Erimia was also victorious, winning the Makindye West III Lord Councillor LC5 seat.
