Talent manager-turned-politician Derrick Orone was kicked out of the Uganda Parliament after court ruled that he violated the electoral campaign process to become the Member of Parliament representing Gogonyo Constituency for the term 2021- 2026.

The Rydim Empire boss secured his Member of Parliament seat as the NRM flag bearer but he is said to have used intimidating methods to secure the votes.

According to his opponent who filed the case and court ruled in his favor, Derrick Orone used to move with security personnel holding guns something which is not accepted in the election process.
