Margaret Zziwa will be representing the NRM in the 2021 general elections in Nakawa West
Former Kampala Woman MP Margaret Nantongo Zziwa has won the National Resistance Movement ticket in the newly created Nakawa West Constituency.  Zziwa polled 1,991 votes to defeat Mukesh Shukla Babubhai and Benjamin Kalumba Ssebuliba in the race.

Mukesh, the first runner up polled 1,275 votes whereas Kalumba emerged the third with 1,240 votes, according to results announced at 9 p.m. on Friday, by Sharifa Namwaase, the NRM registrar for Nakawa division. Zziwa now joins the Deputy Attorney General Freddie Ruhindi as the official NRM candidates in Nakawa West and Nakawa East, in the forthcoming general elections.

Speaking to URN after the declaration of the results, Mukesh congratulated Zziwa for the win but added that he's going to sit with his campaign team and discuss the next move.  However, Kalumba protested the results saying that the elections were marred by irregularities, citing bribery, among others.

He noted that just like his name Kalumba connotes, he will continue moving forward to claim what belongs to him citing his effort towards the creation of the Nakawa West Constituency.

Meanwhile, Farida Nambi got the highest votes in Nakawa for the Kampala Woman Member of Parliament slot. She beat Shamim Nafuna with 6,284 votes against 2,188.
