On Tuesday, the planned Uganda Musicians Association (UMA)elections did not happen after the Ministry of Gender and Social issues intervened and stopped the arrangements on grounds that artists outside Kampala were being left out.

Although some musicians have protested the postponement, Cindy is celebrating.

“This works for me. Many of my supporters were being left out. 60/70 % of my people are upcountry. The physical voting and National Theatre were discriminative,” she said in interviews after the elections were cancelled for the second time. 

“The ministry has promised to fund the elections and now the burden is off the association, which we should now be grateful for,” she added.

A new date for choosing new leaders is yet to be announced.
