The Investment State Minister, Municipality Evelyn Anite is facing stiff competition for the Koboko municipal parliamentary NRM party ticket from Dr. Charles Ayume, the son of the late Speaker, Francis Ayume.  

Dr. Charles Ayume, who has been working with the State House Health Monitoring Team for the last 16 years, has resigned his job to vie for the NRM party ticket.  

 

According to Dr. Ayume, his decision to contest for the Koboko Municipality parliamentary seat, has been influenced by his desire to empower youth and women and residents through providing educational opportunities once elected.    

He says president, Yoweri Museveni and elders in the municipality have okayed his candidature because they want change in the municipal leadership.

The entrance of Dr. Charles Ayume into the political arena has piled pressure on Anite and split NRM voters. 

Some of the voters look at Ayume as the true replacement of his father who served as speaker in the late 1990s.

However, some voters say Anite fought to bring municipal status for the tinny border town of Koboko, which suffered massive destruction during the 1979 insurgency.  

Anite contends that her achievements for Koboko Municipality in the last five years speak loud for her politically.

She also boasts of being the first MP in the entire West Nile region to accomplish all that she promised her electorate.
