On Monday, when Electoral Commission started nominations of Local Government leaders, the exercise delayed due to uncertainties in the electoral areas. Most of the candidates didn’t know where they belong and had to seek guidance from the Commission staff before submitting in their nomination forms.
Previously, the district was conducting nominations at the district Electoral Commission offices. However, another office has now been established at Nakifuma sub-county headquarters. The main centre is now handling candidates from Mukono South, North, Aspirants for the District leadership position, and the municipality whereas the new centre is handling candidates from Nakifuma County.

Dr. Stephen Sebudde, the Kanungu District Health Officer, says the elevation of the health center will improve health service delivery to the community of Kihihi and her neighbours. He says the upgrade of the health centre will help reduce maternal deaths in the area since more health workers will be posted to the facility to boost health service delivery.
