Three candidates will be contesting for the Nakawa Division Mayoral
race after nominations by the Electoral Commission. They include Forum for Democratic
Change-FDC candidate Daniel Musoke, National Unity Platform-NUP flag bearer
Paul Mugambe and NRM's Bruhan Byaruhanga.
The three seek to replace the incumbent Mayor Ronald Nsubuga Balimwezo, who will contest for Nakawa West MP seat. However the race boiling down to two candidates, Musoke and Mugambe.
Musoke who was nominated last week argues that Nakawa being a
community of many diverse ethnic voters and residents, the NUP/people power wave will
not have an impact in deciding who the next mayor will be.
He added that Nakawa voters only mind about service delivery and someone's
capability to lead them out of poverty.
//Cue in: "Nakawa citizens are.......
Cue out: “…just sit in trees"//
\\Cue in: "Nga tonnaba na kugamba.......
Cue out: “…ekibuuzo kyekimu"\\
However, NUP's Mugambe refuted Musoke's view, arguing that like the NRM party has
failed to deliver on its promises, the FDC party also should pave way for a new
wave of leadership offered by NUP.
//Cue in: "Am more prepared.......
Cue out: “…score the ball in the net//
//Cue in: "NUP erina enkizo.......
Cue out: “…omupiira mu katimba"//
Last week, the Electoral Commission extended the nomination
exercise for persons seeking to contest for local council positions to October
5, 2020. The exercise, which initially started on September 21, was due to end
on Thursday, October 1 in all the 146 districts across the country.
