Mawogola North Constituency National Resistance Movement (NRM) supporters have expressed disappointment in the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) for failing to front a flag bearer in the upcoming 2021 general elections.
During a meeting at rainbow Hotel in Sembabule District on Wednesday, a section of NRM supporters led by Benon Burora, the Lugusulu sub-county chairperson petitioned the party chairperson President Museveni to come out and give his stand on the situation in Mawogola North.
Mr. Burora and cooleagues wondered why the party is not fronting a candidate yet there was a primary and the winner declared by the NRM EC Chairman Dr. Tanga Odoi.
The supporters are also demanding for unconditional announcing of Aine Kaguta as the NRM flag bearer because he “genuinely won the election and the party tribunal robbed him of his victory.”
Robert Matovu, another NRM supporter says that there is no genuine reason that was given by the party Central Executive Committee. He blames tribunal that led to withdrawal of the party flag from Sodo wondering why people’s votes are not respected.
Ms Kutesa and Kaguta ware last week nominated as independent candidates to contest with seven other candidates that want to represent Mawogola North.
The other candidates are Henry Nyanzi on the NUP ticket, FDC’s Moses Lyazi and other independents Ismail Wagaba, Hillary Tukundane, Catherine Nakayiza, Sulait Twesigye, and Muhammad Mawanda.
