Musician Raga Dee to Stand on NRM party Ticket for Kampala Lord Mayor after Fresh Recount Declares him Winner
It’s all jubilation in the camp of local musician Kazibwe Daniel aka Ragga dee after a fresh vote recount has declared him the official flag bearer of the NRM ticket for the Kampala Lord Mayoral race.
In hotly contested primaries polls held on September 11, Ragga Dee lost to Ssebaana Kizito.
The earlier results showed Ragga Dee on the lead in Kawempe, Nakawa and Kampala central while he lost in Makindye division,Lubaga among other areas.
Ragga Dee who couldn’t accept the results lying low went on to petition the Electoral Commission on grounds that the declaration forms had been tampered with.
On Thursday, in a recount, Ragga dee has in a twist of events scooped a win in the areas he had previously lost including Lubaga, Makindye, and a drastic change showing even more votes in areas he had previously won.
NRM Electoral Commissioned Jane Alisemera Babiiha announced the change at the NRM Electoral Commission in Kampala confirmed raga Dee’s argument that the final tallying at the divisions did not match with what was on their declaration forms.
She says during the recount, they invited agents of both candidates and went through the forms together and discussed results.
Ragga dee will face it off in the incumbent Erias lukwago-FDC, Kampala woman Mp Nabilah Naggayi, Latif Ssebagala or musician Jose Chameleone on NUP ticket, and businesswoman Beatrice Kayanja-DP
