Former Wakiso District Chairman Eng. Ian Kyeyune has lost the National Resistance Movement-NRM primaries, a major dent to his comeback plan.

He was defeated by Masuliita Town Council chairman Moses Mayanja, with 79,373 votes against his 2,291 votes. This was the second time Ian Kyeyune is losing the party primaries. In 2016, he lost the race to Yona Nsubuga.

The results were from 27 lower local governments with a total number of 99, 664, voters, according to  William Kaggwa, the wakiso district NRM electoral chairperson. However, voting was characterized by chaos and accusations of voter bribery which led to fights at different polling stations mainly in Nansana Municipality.

Kaggwa advised the dissatisfied party members to lodge complaints through the NRM Electoral Commission for redress. However, Mayanja asked all supporters of Eng Kyeyune to join his camp so that they reclaim Wakiso district for the NRM party.
