Independent Presidential Candidate, Nancy Linda Kalembe, has
halted her campaigns over lack of funds.
Kalembe is seeking 125 to 150 Million Shillings to canvass for votes in the
remaining 77 districts in 36 days.

Kalembe who started her campaign in Jinja on November 12, 2020, went to Eastern
Uganda, Northern, West Nile, Bugishu and Karamoja sub-regions. She has missed
three days of campaigns in Masindi, Hoima, Kyankwanzi, Kikuube, Kiryandongo,
Kyenjojo, Kagadi, Kakumiro, and Bundibugyo.
Kalembe says that for the time being, she will be using the media to campaign
as she solicits for funds from well-wishers.
//Cue in “destroyed on this…
Cue out …will be moving.”//
Kalembe's manifesto titled ‘leaving no one behind’, entails empowering 56
tribes of Uganda, community businesses, farming, job creation, land security,
better education, health, agriculture and putting in place response teams for
disasters and pandemics.
Ali Kaku, a resident of Luwafu village in Kampala thinks that Kalembe, as the
only female candidate in the race should be supported to maintain the female
voice in 2021 presidential campaign and elections. He says based on what he has
heard from her campaign trail, she is a promising candidate with a good
manifesto despite lacking campaign resources.
//Cue in “yeah positivity it…
Cue out …positivity in it.”//
Milika Kwagalakwe, a supporter of Kalembe says it is by the mercy
of God that she is campaigning well despite facing challenges from security
personnel, poor roads.
