The Kayunga District Woman Member of Parliament Idah Erios Nantaba has thrown her support behind an independent candidate Majid Nyanzi for the Kayunga LCV race.

For the last three weeks, the officials from the National Resistance Movement-NRM Secretariat have camped in Kayunga to unite party members and mobilize support to the NRM flagbearer Andrew Muwonge.

Rose Mary Seninde Nansubuga says that efforts to mediate reconcile Nantaba and the District NRM Chairperson Moses Kaliisa Kalangwa have not been fruitful. 

On Monday, Nantaba publically declared her support for Nyanzi and accompanied him for the nomination exercise.  According to Nantaba, the constitution grants her the right to support a candidate of her choice.

Nyanzi, who is also the current LCIII Chairperson of Kayunga Town Council has denied claims that he has been fronted by Nantaba to disorganize the NRM camp. Nyanzi says that he has the right to contest stand for any position and like other candidates, he also has the capacity to win backup support of strong and reputable persons.

Nyanzi and Harriet Nakwede of the National Unity Platform-NUP candidate were on Monday nominated. Nine candidates have expressed interest to contest in the by-election that will take place on December 16.

Nakwede roots for transforming the education system of the district, fighting land wrangles, improving the road network system, and sourcing better markets for farmers.
