City businessman and Busiro South Member of Parliament Simon Peter Ssematimba is up to the task to retain his legislative seat against seven(7) contenders, all nominated on Friday.
All contenders for the Busiro South MP Seat are pinning incumbent Ssematimba for misrepresentation and not fulfilling his manifesto during the last five years.
Uniquely, In Busiro South only 3 political parties have been represented including National Resistance Movement(NRM), National Unity Platform(NUP), and Democratic Party(DP); the other 5 candidates turned up as independents.
DP presented Lawyer Stephen Ssekigozi for a consecutive time, he came second in 2016 and challenged Ssematimba’s victory in the courts of law but lost.
NUP sent in Charles Matovu, who they preferred over now independent William Kagimu and a host of others, Saul Kikomeko is also in the race as an independent after his hopes of convincing either NUP or DP we’re squashed.
Charles Gongola Lwanga was nominated as an independent after an ugly fallout with the NRM on grounds of election malpractice in the party primaries that sent fellow loser Ronald Ssenyondwa into hibernation.
The other candidates include businessman Paul Owor and Joseph Kayemba, who are both not affiliated to any political party.
