Incumbent Kassanda South Member of Parliament (MP) Simeo Nsubuga has dumped ruling party National Resistance Movement and he has declared that he will stand as an Independent candidate in the forthcoming general elections.
This follows the Friday party primary elections where Michael Muhumuza was announced the winner with 11,173 votes. Nsubuga who scooped 11,011 votes claimed the election was not fair. “I feel, and I am sure my victory was robbed. I followed the exercise everywhere and it was not free and fair. Many people were involved in the malpractices and so I cannot accept the results. I will, therefore, stand as an independent,” Nsubuga said.
In his new campaign posters, Nsubuga uses a photo of the king of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi and he also says he is ‘Omusajja wa Kabaka’ which literally translates to ‘Kabaka’s man’. He has done this to attract sympathy from Baganda to vote for him overwhelmingly. Nsubuga is a 2017 presidential age limit proponent and says he put his life at stake for the NRM Party. “I have been the powerpoint of NRM and my exit will affect the party.” Simeo Nsubuga affirms.
