Here is a glimpse into what you didn’t know about Hon Nabilah Naggayi Sempala, the aspiring Kampala Lord Mayor under the National Unity Platform party.
Naggayi began her political career as a Councilor in Wakiso District Local Government in 2001, serving in that capacity until 2005. She, with others, including Muhammad Nsereko, the incumbent member of Parliament for Kampala Central Division, established the Social Democratic Party (SDP). She actively campaigned for the re-opening of the political space to multi-party democracy during the 2005 referendum. It was not until the run-up to the 2006 general elections, that she formally joined the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) political party.
In 2006, at the age of 35, she unseated Margaret Nantongo Zziwa of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) political party, to capture the Women Representative’s seat for Kampala in the 8th parliament (2006 to 2011).
During the 2011 parliamentary elections, she received 222,724 votes compared to the 164,378 votes her closest challenger, Margaret Zziwa of the NRM received.
In 2016 Naggayi faced off with five other contestants, including the incumbent Minister of State for Youth and Children’s Affairs, Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi. However Naggayi won handily.
Nabilah has vast experience when it comes to matters of local government and Kampala District social economical and political affairs.
Having spotted alot of weaknesses in the current political wing adminstration at the city hall, Nabilah has promised to bridge the gap and fill up the missing link to make sure that services reach up to the people of Kampala not mere playing defiance tricks because the people of Kampala need service to improve their standards of living.
Nabilah is also a member of many women groups which she has promised to give a hand the more to uplift the lives of the mothers of this world.
Nabilah has also promised to search for investments for Kampala from even overseas as the capital city has high levels of unemployment, poor roads, poor sanitation and social-political wrangles which need immediate addressing.
Nabilah to many is seen as a sign of hope of a new capital city , clean and free from unnecessary wrangles that have hindered its development. Nabilah is the flag bearer of the National Unity Platform led by Hon Kyagulanyi Robert who has asked all change seeking forces to simply tick where they see the umbrella.
Nabilah brings you the new Kampala as Bobi Wine leads you to a new Uganda.
