During a meeting last Friday at Kirigime Guest House in Kabale Municipality Musasizi reportedly told the local leaders that he and other parliamentarians had endorsed Pastoli Twinomuhangi, the former Kabale district speaker as the NRM Candidate and Mary Bebwajuba for District Speaker.

Musasizi also revealed that the MPs had zeroed on Joventa Turinomuhangi to be the District Woman MP and himself as the District NRM chairperson.

The meeting was attended by the Rubanda County West MP Eng Denis Sabiiti Bamwoya, sub county NRM chairpersons, sub county (LC3) chairpersons, and LC 5 councilors.

Musasizi told the meeting that the purpose of the resolution was to create harmony and ensure a good start for the district.

The move was however not welcomed by some of the leaders who said Musasizi is not the alpha and omega of Rubanda and is not supposed to decide for the NRM members by handpicking his friends as party candidates.

Kenneth Jogo Biryabarema, an NRM contestant for the LC5 seat said Musasizi in effect, was assuming all the powers of the city. The MP was also opposed by Ngoma Ngime, the Bufundi sub county NRM chairperson who said that Musasizi was directly flouting NRM Rules.

Locals noted that MP Musasizi has for a long time been nurturing ambitions to become the district party chairman so that he joins the higher ranks of the ruling Party. Last year he was defeated in the same race by Minister David Bahati in Kabale district.

The NRM is expected to hold its primaries starting from 1st to 15th July 2016. The Independent Electoral Commission on the other hand has set 19th and 20th July 2016 as the day for the nominations of candidates for the woman Member of Parliament seat and district LC5. The elections are to be held on 29th August 2016.
