Seven chairpersons of sub-county councils in Luweero district have endorsed Ronald Ndawula, the rival of Abdul Nadduli for NRM and LC 5 chairperson seats as the party primaries heat up. The seven LC 3 bosses reached the decision at Namatovu Rest Gardens in Katikamu on Sunday evening.

Abdul Nadduli is currently both the district NRM chairperson and LC 5 chairperson for Luweero. He is however only seeking re-election for the LC 5 seat, and has fronted Ali Ndawula for the district NRM chairperson.

The seven sub-county chairpersons are however backing Nadduli's rival, Ronald Ndawula for both positions. They accuse both Nadduli and his ally of not doing enough for the district.

Kamira LC 3 chairperson, Livingstone Kategeya says that during his time as Bamunanika MP, Ali Ndawula abandoned the constituency.

// Cue in: “I Kategeya ….

   Cue out;….right person”//


// Cue in: “olw\'okubba omulangira….

    Cue out;….ngazzemu”//

Katikamu sub-county chairperson, Sam Sserunjogi accuses Nadduli of failing to remind President Museveni about pledges to the district that include elevation of Kasana Health Center IV to hospital status, construction of a pineapple factory, compensation of veterans, among others. He says they have agreed to mobilize support and resources for Ronald Ndawula, against Nadduli and his ally.

// Cue in: “Ndawula tumulabyemu…

    Cue out;….mu maaso”//

Erasmus Mugerwa, a retired politician says the endorsement is big a blow to Nadduli because some of the LC 3 chairpersons are voters for district NRM chairperson electoral college. He adds that LC 3 chairpersons are also influential in determining who should be voted in other seats especially in the general elections.

But Nadduli laughs off the plot, describing the LC 3 chairpersons as opportunists. He explains that his strength is within the ordinary supporters and the LC 3 chairpersons have lost popularity to influence any person. Ali Ndawula who is contesting for NRM district chairperson could not be reached for a comment.

The  LC 3 chairpersons at the meeting include Abdullah Luboyera of Kalagala sub-county, Steven Ssebidde of Bamunanika, Ssemuyaba Katongole of Butuntumula, Sam Sserunjogi of Katikamu, Emmy Ssemugabi of Luweero, Livingstone Kategeya of Kamira and Charles Kalibbala of Makulubita.
