In meeting held at Kati Kati in Kampala, NRM chairpersons from various districts meant Minister Kiwanda Ssubi , Deputy Speaker Oulanyah and Hon Chris Baryomunsi who are also seeking NRM party positions .
In the same meeting it was communicated that Speaker Kadaga was to attend the same meeting as a special guest to also seek their support something they didn’t not agree with.

While speaking to journalists upon her nomination few days ago, Kadaga said, she is confident that the NRM members who trust her leadership will again vote for her. “I want to assure NRM members across the country that I have been formally nominated; I want to tell them that I’m ready to serve you and I’m looking forward to your support as usual,” said Kadaga.
