KING SAHA: Why I missed out on the UMA Debates!


Despite being one of the top leading candidates in the UMA General Elections, Singer King Saha was a no show at the two UMA Presidential debates over the weekend.

In his defense, the Zakayo singer, says that he had been booked for performances on the dates the debates happened. In his rant, he says that he had to prioritize making money than attending a debate because he needs to fund his campaigns given the fact that they are not facilitated fo campaigns.

“I didn’t attend the debate because I was booked prior to the debate an I was told about the debates on short notice. I couldn’t miss making money because even these campaigns are self funded” he said.

Saha made the remarks on Monday at National Theatre shortly after attending a joint meeting between the UMA Electoral committee and candidates. He further rubbished the talk that he missed out on the debates because the debate was in English something that would hinder his articulation of points.
