Latif Ssebagala Steps Down as NUP Flag Bearer for Kampala Lord Mayor

Published

Kawempe North Member of Parliament Al hajj Latif Ssebagala has stepped down from the Kampala Lord Mayoral race, The Tower Post reports.

Ssebagala who had been selected as the flag bearer for the Bobi Wine led National Unity Platform (NUP) said his decision was in a bid to maintain unity in the opposition as they gear up to dislodge President Museveni and the NRM.

This comes days after the NUP Electoral Commission seconded Ssebagala and sidelined popular musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone who was gunning for the same position.

Unconfirmed reports had earlier purported that the singer was sidelined for being a catholic and not having international exposure, an allegation that was dismissed by the party.

But the talk about division in the NUP according to financial lines, religion and loyalty to the NUP Principal (Bobi Wine) kept making rounds which was seen as a precursor to division within the party.

Ssebagala’s decision leaves Jose Chameleone as NUP’s favorite for Kampala Lord Mayor position.

If approved, he will face off with Forum for Democratic Change – FDC’s Erias Lukwago who is the incumbent and retired singer Dan Kazibwe – Ragga Dee who is with the ruling National Resistance Movement -NRM.

Chameleone Distances Self from Viral ANT Poster, Defection Allegations

Published

A few days after National Unit Platform Party (NUP) has denied Joseph Mayanja aka Chameleon ticket to contest on Kampala City Lord Mayor, the musician has not yet declared his next move which has left many guessing.

Some have gone an extra mile to forge social media statements claiming that its Mayanja authored them, well as others have designed a campaign poster indicating that he has joined the Alliance for National Transformation Party (ANT) under the leadership of Rtd General Gregory Mugisha Muntu.

The poster has since been shared massively on various social media platforms, insinuating that Chameleon has defected from NUP to ANT.

In response to this, Chameleon, via his official Facebook page, distanced himself from this poster saying that it’s being spread by people with ill intentions.

“Don’t believe such propaganda that is here to disturb our vision. THIS POSTER IS FAKE!” reads part of his post.

The Lord Mayor hopeful is, however, expected to publically declare his next move after NUP, his new party, handed over the party card on the same post to Hajji Latif Ssebagala.

In this race, Ssebagala is expected to face off with the incumbent Hajji Erias Lukwago who has already announced his bid to defend his position as well as other candidates like NRM’s Daniel Kazibwe aka Ragga Dee and Nabilah Naggayi Sempala, who expressed interest for the same.
