FOR FDC TO PLACE A CANDIDATE AGAINST KAWUMA IS UNFORTUNATE
Many times I wonder what the opposition is up to. given the turbulent times we are going through in Uganda,it is sad that the likes of Salamu Musumba can fail to see what a child could see. It is clear that Kawuma's victory is being messed up given the facts that led to the by-election,however, it is sad that the likes of Salamu Musumba cannot see sense in supporting Kawuma and instead as a party decide to have a candidate against him. Surely, by having two opposition candidates, given the way NRM has acted in the past by-elections and their special interest to take this seat, any person who God gave good judgment would put other considerations a part and see the opposition retain this seat. it will be a big shame on FDC if this seat goes to the NRM. We are all aware of the monies the NRM is likely to use in this election.

Entebbe Municipality nominations on
Thursday, 8th September, 2011
By Ronald Sebutiko
The Electoral Commission on Thursday conducted nominations for candidates contesting in the by-elections for a Member of Parliament for Entebbe Municipality in Wakiso district.
The two-day exercise is taking place at the returning officer’s office at Changsha Model Primary School in Entebbe Municipality starting at 9 am.
Entebbe Municipality seat last month fell vacant after court nullified the election of Democratic Party’s Muhammad Kawuma and ordered for fresh polls.
EC deputy spokesperson Paul Bukenya said voters’ register will be displayed starting next week and that guidelines to be followed by interested candidates have been issued.
He said the Mpigi district returning officer Sarah Bukirwa has been transferred to Wakiso district as the new returning officer ahead of the Entebbe Municipality by-election.
She replaces Margaret Kugonza who has been transferred to Mpigi district as the new returning officer.
