Nakawa Division Mayor, Ronald Balimwezo Nsubuga
and the National Unity Platform-NUP Party Spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi has
agreed to take advantage of the recent decision to split Nakawa into two

into Nakawa East and West came as a blessing to both aspirants. The two
recently met at the home of the NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu in
Magere where Balimwezo was officially unveiled as a new card holding member of
the NUP party.
