Aspirants eyeing Parliamentary seats in Luwero district have started early campaigns ahead of nominations next year.

According to the Electoral Commission Road Map, Parliamentary candidates’ nominations shall be held on Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th of September 2025. 

Polling shall be held on a date between Monday 12th January and Monday 9th February 2026 in line with Article 62(2) of the constitution of the Republic of Uganda.

However, eighteen months to the nomination, races for Parliamentary seats in Luwero are getting hotter as aspirants launch several activities to woo supporters.

The most contested constituency in Luwero district is Katikamu North which is currently represented by MP Denis Sekabira of the National Unity Platform.

So far two aspirants Ronald Ndawula the Current NRM District Chairperson and Gaddafi Nasur the NRM Youths League Chairperson are currently engaged in several activities to woo supporters to vote for them in 2026. Both contested for the seat in 2021 but they lost to MP Sekabira.

On Wednesday, Gaddafi invited 100 youths at Luwero Diocese Guest House and deployed them in Luwero town to start mobilizing support for him ahead of the 2026 general elections. He has already met several women groups and leaders asking them to support his bid.

Gaddafi has also sunk 113 boreholes to address the water scarcity in rural areas, donated chicken together with poultry feeds to several residents, and contributed cash handouts to other small-scale businesses among other projects.

Gaddafi said that he was covering a vacuum left by the current MP who had failed to lobby for the residents because he was busy criticizing the government which he can’t remove from power.

Ndawula is currently constructing a pineapple roadside market at Balikyejjusa village along the highway to benefit the farmers and vendors.  Ndawula has made several donations to the construction of schools, churches, and mosques among others.

Ndawula said that the residents are regretting for voting the NUP candidate because he hasn’t changed anything as they expected.  Ndawula is now appealing to residents not to make the same mistake but to vote for him in 2026.

Ndawula said that he has decided to start the campaigns early to prepare and consolidate his support before nominations.

// Cue in: “Enkoko enkeeze…

Cue out;…akitegedde”//

But MP Sekabira said that he was voted to remind the government to fulfill its pledges and improve service delivery rather than not to substitute its mandate.

Sekabira added that although there have been efforts by the government to frustrate his activities, he has been a voice of the constituency and many projects are being done due to his pressure on relevant authorities

Sekabira said that it’s still an uphill task for any NRM candidate to win any seat in Luwero because residents are tired of its unfulfilled pledges.

// Cue in: “ The people of ….

Cue out;…very unfair.’’//

Sekabira has also engaged in organizing football tournaments where he donated several motorcycles, constructed a roadside pineapple market in Kasana township and cash handouts to several small-scale businesses.

In other areas, Kirabo Agnes the Youth Central MP, and Cissy Mulondo are also already campaigning for the District Woman MP seat currently occupied by Brenda Nabukenya of the National Unity Platform.

In Bamunanika County, Incumbent MP Robert Ssekitoleeko is being challenged by Higher Education State Minister John C. Muyingo whom he defeated in the 2021 general elections.

As the electoral period draws closer, it remains to be seen how the incumbent opposition MPs will retain the seats as NRM seeks to reclaim them.
