The new wave of entertainers joining Politics hasn’t left out local city comedian Dickson Lubega AKA Madrat of the famous Madrat & Chico comedy duo. Madrat made an astonishing announcement on how he’s ready to challenge incumbent Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze. “ I have my academic documents and am also pursuing an online degree in Law to enable me represent the views of my people effectively in Parliament “ Madrat replied to his supporters who questioned his credentials to join Parliament. The comedian however hasn’t officially picked his nominations from the People Power offices where he subscribes and also his official poster from his social media looks so comical making his whole political move a matter of debate.
Madrat wont be the first comedian to vie for a political office in Uganda as Kato Lubwama is a member of Parliament already and the late Paddy Bitama once wanted the presidency of Uganda.We await to see if indeed Madrat is serious about contesting or its another act from his comedy book.
