Kanungu Resident District Commissioner Harriet Nakamya has come out and personally apologised for interfering in last year ruling National Resistance Movement party primaries where candidates whom she favored but lost were instead announced as winners.
It took the intervation of president Museveni into the matter before the rightful winners were eventually announced as NRM flag bearers in different areas. Nakamya sounded the apology yesterday while speaking at the Idd El fitri day prayers at Kihihi main mosque in Kanungu district.
Those who had been sidelined by the RDC in the NRM primaries and eventually became winners include Kinkiizi West MP Hon James Ruggi Kaberuka, Kanungu District Woman MP Hon Elizabeth Karungi Beikirize, Kanungu LC 5 chairperson Josephine kasya among others. “i am sorry for what ever did not go well during the election especially where some people were not declared winners in the NRM primaries last year,” She said. Nakamya called for total forgiveness and pledged to work with every one who was eventually elected as a leader at any level regardless of the party she or he belongs.
In November last year during the NRM elections losers were announced winners and these included Jacqueline Kyatuheire for Kinkiizi West, Ruth Karungi for woman MP Goddie Willy Beluga for LC 5 and dezi Tugume for Kihihi town council. However Kasya and others who had been sidelined reported the matter to president Museveni who sent a verification team headed by NRM national vice chairman Alhaj moses Kigongo
