The Kayunga Town Council LCIII Chairperson Majid Nyanzi has joined the Kayunga District LCV Chairperson race.

Eric Sabiiti, the Head of Litigation at the Electoral Commission says that LCIII Chairpersons are not barred from contesting for another electoral office before resigning their current positions.

He however notes that if Nyanzi wins, he will not be allowed to take oath for another office before resigning from the current position.

Nyanzi’s decision to contest for the LCV seat has attracted criticism, especially from the National Resistance Movement-NRM party members. They accuse him of intentionally disrupting Andrew Muwonge, the NRM flag bearer.

Last month, the Electoral Commission set December 16, 2021, as the election date for the by-election. The seat fell vacant after Ffefeka Sserubugo, the LCV Chairperson for Kayunga district, was found dead.  His body was found hanging by the tree, near his home in Kayunga.
