Uganda’s Musician turned Politian Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has been voted as the most influential news maker over the course of the news year – in this case, 2018.

The online team makes four nominations – could be a person, group of persons or an institution that impacted the news in the year under review.

This year, two reformists made the shortlist, an anti-conformist and a global health body completed the list. At the end of the day, the anti-conformist won in a combination of in-house and Twitter poll.

Bobi Wine, who entered politics and parliament, became one of the biggest opponents in the age-limit debate that threw parliament into chaos twice in 2017.

His “People Power” movement continued its march to what it said is “freedom” from the NRM government headed by current President Yoweri Museveni.
