He might not be the first entertainer to win a political post but VJ Junior is indeed the first movie translator to take part in active politics after emerging victorious in the just concluded Local council elections.
VJ Junior beat three other rivals in Bwaise 2, Kawempe Division to the top post and becomes the newly elected Councilor to represent areas such as Bwaise, Kazo and some parts of Kawempe.
Lately, Junior has been inconsistent when it comes to movie translation but has been apologizing for his absconder.
The celebrated movie translator it is said is already training a one VJ Son to replace him in the translation field now that he’s going to be dedicating most of his time representing his area at the Kampala City Council headquarters.
His movie translating job played a key role in helping him win this election, having been a darling to many local movie enthusiasts.
He joins other entertainers like Judith Babirye, Kato Lubwama and Peter Ssematimba as active politicians this year with their term in office ending five years from now
