The Masaka Municipality Member of Parliament, Mathias Mpuuga says Uganda\'s biggest problem is a Parliament dominated by the ruling National Resistance Movement Party members.

Mpuuga has been nominated as Democratic Party candidate to contest again for Masaka Municipality MP seat. 


Mpuuga who claims to have achieved most of his priorities set out in 2011 manifesto says his next energy will be dedicated to reducing the number of NRM MPs in Parliament in February general elections.


// Cue in: “ Part of my duty…

Cue out: …partisan connotation.”//

// Cue in: “ Era olutalo lwe'ngenda………….

Cue out: …bwengenda okutambulirako.”//

He faces Herman Ssentongo, the former Sembabule LC 5 Chairman, who is the NRM candidate and Raymond Ssebugwawo, an Independent candidate.

Andrew Batemyetto, the DP candidate seeking to unseat Vice President, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi in Bukoto Central agrees with Mpuuga. 

He says although Ssekandi has been in Parliament since 1996, he has not done much for the constituency. He says Sekandi only succeeded in passing various bad laws that help keep President Yoweri Museveni in power.

But Ssekandi, denies Mpuuga\'s allegations. Ssekandi who says he will not retire soon, says the current Parliament has been one of the best performing.

// Cue in: “We are going to serve…

Cue out: …next five years.”//

Gonzaga Kagumba, a voter from Lwengo says he fears there could be even more NRM MPs in the next Parliament. 

// Cue in: “The levels of …

Cue out: …leadership is bad.”//

MP Frida Nanziri Mubanda, the incumbent Masaka Woman MP who is also the NRM candidate for the same seat has defended the Kyankwanzi meetings.

She says they go to Kyankwanzi to harmonize party positions on contentious issues to avoid clashing at the floor of parliament, and not to take orders from president Museveni.
