Journalist Dabada Yusuf

As the 2021 general elections nears, Busiki constituency is one to watch as Jinja based NBS radio journalist and People power co-coordinator for Namutumba Dabada Yusuf moves to defy odds to dislodge NRM leaning Paul Akamba who was among the champion men of removing the controversial age-limit article 102B from the constitution.

Paul Akamba went as independent in the previous elections after loosing to the then Asupasa Mpongo. He’s running on the NRM ticket battling with former Iganga boy’s Head teacher and proprietor of Jinja Central Primary school Fred Kasisa.

Dabada Yusuf is already endorsed by Bobi wine’s National Unity Platform, he joined active politics in 2016 when he joined the race for male District youth councillor and won both in NRM primaries and general elections. He was later appointed the finance secretary of Namutumba district local government for two and a half years by the district chairperson Hajji Kumbuga Saleh but was later dropped dumping NRM for People power.

Due to a desire and need for fighting equality, High poverty levels, Unemployment and all the other policies set by government to oppress the majority Ugandans,  he’s now destined to contest for MP representing the people of Busiki county in Namutumba District.

Dabada Yusuf is not a new comer in the media industry because he has worked with it since 2010 when I was still at MUBS and so far worked rocked the airwaves on four radio stations which include 88.6Kiira FM in jinja,  91.1R FM in Iganga,  102.3 Eastern Voice FM in Bugiri and currently 89.4 NBS FM where he works as a sports analyst and substitute talk show host.
It’s upon such a back ground that he moves to unnseat first time MP Paul Akamba who to many has done nothing for his constituency as Busiki and Namutumba continue lagging behind in Health, Education among other matters.
