LIST:- 22 Museveni Ministers who lost their parliamentary seats in 2021 general elections

On 14 January, 2021, Uganda held its general elections that saw President Yoweri Museveni winning a sixth term in office after defeating his closest challenger Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

Museveni who has been in power since 1986, got a new mandate after he won 58.64 percent of the vote. Bobi Wine got 34.83% of the vote. Ugandans also voted for their legislators to represent them in the 11th Parliament.

Although Museveni’s party won a majority in the nearly 500 parliamentary seats, several of his close allies, including his vice president Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi and other ministers lost their seats at the polls. Bobi Wine’s party, National Unity Platform-NUP, also won an opposition majority, which means that it will now replace Dr Kizza Besigye’s FDC as the leading opposition party in Uganda.
