This results from two underlying factors mainly the fact that the incumbent president Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni hails from that region and also the ongoing gerrymandering whereby the state out of patronage crafts constituencies to be led by the NRM party cadres who may miss out juicy cabinet and government slots.

The parliament share shows that the western region leads with 270 legislators of municipality and constituency level followed by central which has a big population of people but represented by only 91 MPs. The Northern region follows with 84 MPs while the Eastern is the last with 81 Members of parliament.

Explain. Don’t spin!,” he writes.
