National Unity Platform (NUP) youthful Henry Nyanzi Mawejje who is MP Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu’s confidant is set to defeat National Resistance Movement (NRM) in a tough Mawogola North Parliamentary race.

NRM has two serious candidates backed by different strong party heavy weights.

Mr Sodo Ayine Godfrey Kaguta who is a brother to president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is set to face it with Minister Sam Kahamba Kuteesa’s daughter Shartis Musherure Kutesa in the NRM party primaries.

The political temperatures are raising up, day by day, in the constituency especially with the pressure from Bobi Wine blue eyed boy Nyanzi Henry Mawejje.

Sources from Mawogola North constituency informed Whisper Eye News that the two NRM candidates may fail to agree after the primaries.

“I don’t think that Mr Sodo Kaguta, or Shartis Musherure any of the two can respect the outcomes of NRM primaries. The one who will be defeated will run as an independent candidate,” the source said.

Ms Shartis Kutesa has been in the United States of America, where she left to come back to Uganda in an attempt to replace her farther, Minister Sam Kutesa who has been a legislator since 1980.

Residents of Mawogola North are badly in need of change and they are likely to cast a protest vote in 2021.

NUP president also Kyadondo East MP Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu is interested in Ssembabule district just much as he is intrested in defeating Museveni.

Reports from Kamwokya the seat of NUP party indicate that Mr Wine is financing youthful Nyanzi Henry Mawejje to defeat president Museveni’s brother Sodo and his Minister Sam Kutesa’s daughter Musherure Kutesa.

In the race there is also Mr Kisekka Salim who has been Minister Sam Kutesa’s close and yes-man who declared to contest for the same seat in the forthcoming general elections.

Mr Kisekka is a close friend to Minister Sam Kutesa and there are possibilities that the two may find a common ground before the nomination dates.
