The Kayunga district fracas has not yet settled after a huge section of district councillors mainly affiliated to the National Unity Platform party have persistently failed to attend council sessions sanctioned by Andrew Muwonge.

The councillors stress that Muwonge is not the legitimate LCV councillor as they insist that NUP’s Harriet Nakwedde won the polls with a landslide victory of over 15,000 votes in difference.

“Muwonge never won any election. We don’t want to work with an imposter. The voice of the people should be left to prevail,” one NUP councillor said. “Which kind of leader can comfortably impose himself on a population that rejected him. Muwonge should just go back to his farm and rear pigs,” another councillor remarked.

The Kayunga LCV byelection was mainly a two horse race between the National Unity Platform party’s candidate Nakwedde Harriet Kafeero and NRM’s Andrew Muwonge.

The NUP candidate massively won the contest but the Electoral Commission chairperson Simon Byabakama was deployed to tactically render the NRM some malpractice assistance. The presiding officer after spending an entire night tallying votes that placed the NUP candidate in the lead had to take a twist and declare the NRM candidate victor. Since then, Kayunga has remained divided on political lines with the residents declining to associate with NRM leaders whom they accuse of broad daylight theft.
