FDC TO WIN KASESE BY-ELECTIONS, MAFABI
The leader of opposition in Parliament, Nathan Nandala Mafabi has vowed that Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) will defeat NRM in the Kasese woman MP by-elections that will be held on August 8th.
Nandala, told journalists at Grand Holiday Hotel in Mbarara, at the weekend after meeting of Party leaders in Ankole Sub-region to discuss new strategies for development and leadership of the party.
He said that FDC party will retain the hotly-contested seat, adding that their candidate, Winfred Kiiza, is strong and focused on causing change and development in Kasese than her opponent from NRM.
Mafabi said that FDC is aware that the NRM will mobilize and take all resources including money to Kasese to win the August slated by-elections but they will not manage because FDC is strong.
He added that Ugandans have woken up and they know what they want.
Winfred Kiiza, who has been the area woman MP for six years, lost her seat in June after court of appeal ruling in favour of NRM’s Rehema Muhindo on grounds that electoral commission erred in organizing the 2011 elections for the woman MP in Kasese.
So far Kasese Guide Radio understands that the third candidate Betty Kayesu is joining the race on independent ticket. END
