UPC Eyeing At State House, Hon. Akena Upfront.

The President of the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party, Hon. Jimmy James Michael Akena, looks to be throwing his hat into the ring for the highly anticipated 2026 presidential election.

Akena’s candidacy prompt during a heartfelt gathering in Apac District on Friday that did not only energize his supporters but also seems to be intensifying competition within the opposition ranks.

The atmosphere in Apac District was charged with excitement as locals welcomed Akena with open arms as he is seen to run for the presidency. In his speech, Akena emphasized the need for accountability among leaders at all levels, calling upon them to prioritize the welfare of the nation.

One poignant moment during Akena’s visit to Apac was his pilgrimage to the grave of his late father, Dr. Apollo Milton Obote, a respected former President of the Republic of Uganda.

At his father’s resting place, Akena made an emotional plea to UPC party leaders, requesting that they bury him at the feet of his father when his time comes. This gesture demonstrated the deep connection Akena maintains with his family’s legacy and the significance of his political journey.

Akena noted that when his father, (Obote)was alive, asked to be buried next to his grandfather, noting that the grandfather inspired him to get education to fight the British colonial rule.

Akena’s declaration of his candidacy was met with the presence of key party officials, highlighting the unity and support within the UPC for his presidential aspirations.

Christ Ogom, the party’s regional vice chairperson, Lango Sub- used the occasion to call for an end to internal disputes within the party, emphasizing the importance of collective dedication and teamwork in achieving their goals.

Akena’s announcement has set the stage for an interesting presidential race, as he now faces struggle from another prominent opposition figure, Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, and General Kainerugaba Muhoozi who is also said to be vying for the presidential position in 2026 and has been doing worldwide tour and mobilization.

Notably, Akena currently serves as the Member of Parliament representing Lira City East and is the son of the late Dr. Apollo Milton Obote. Dr. Obote played a significant role in Uganda’s history, leading the nation to independence from British colonial rule in 1962. Obote served as the prime minister of Uganda from 1962 to 1966 and later as the second president of Uganda, with terms from 1966 to 1971 and then again from 1980 to 1985.

As the 2026 presidential race unfolds, the political landscape in Uganda promises to be dynamic and closely watched.
