John Kateshumbwa the brother to Dickson Kateshumbwa the former URA Commissioner in-charge of customs, has stepped aside from his position as Electoral commission chairperson for Sheema District to avoid conflict of interest in the forthcoming NRM primaries.
According to the letter which www.mknewslink.com obtained a copy, John Kateshumbwa resigned from his office on June 26 and recommended Frank Ahimbisibwe his vice to conduct NRM primaries.
“This is to inform you that my brother Dickson Kateshumbwa has expressed interest to stand for position of Member of Parliament for Sheema municipality 2021-2026 on the NRM ticket,” reads part of the letter.
However, Sources say during the recent CEC meeting, NRM made a decision to have John Kateshumbwa step side during NRM primaries to avoid conflict of interest.
Dickson Kateshumbwa is set to battle it out with the incumbent, Dr Elioda Tumwesigye, and other candidates, for the NRM party flag.
