Ssegirinya Sweating Plasma As NUP Kawempe North Councilors Reject Him Over Incompetency, Endorse Kidandala



Led by Sylivia Nakyobe, JP Senkya and Safina Namatovu, more than 30 NUP flag bearers for the Kawempe North LC3 councilor slots have unanimously rejected Mohammed Segirinya as the flag bearer for Kawempe North MP Seat.

They say that the comical Segirinya is merely a Facebook personality with many expensive campaign posters in the constituency but in actual sense, he isn’t on the ground. They have written to NUP Secretariat filing their petition in which they articulate reasons why Segirinya is fatally unfit for the MP job.

The councilors have made it clear that their choice is Suleiman Kidandala Serwadda, who will most likely protest rejection by the NUP’s Elections Management Committee by vying for the same seat on the independent ticket. Today morning, the disgruntled councilors have held a press conference in Kanyanya to denounce Segirinya while showing solidarity for Kidandala.

“Parliament is not the place for Mohammed Ssegirinya to take his theatrics. We would rather rally behind Sulaiman Kidandala who is an independent candidate because he has a good understanding and will therefore represent us well.”#MonitorUpdates 🎥 Damali Mukhaye

They have this Monday evening raised Shs850,000 from amongst themselves and paid for the venue already ahead of tomorrow’s media event. It’s not very surprising that they are showing solidarity for Kidandala because many of them previously subscribed to UYD, DP and more recently DP block where Kidandala served as their mentor.

“We have the flag for NUP for the councilor positions yes but we remain very aggrieved that our mentor Kidandala hasn’t been treated fairly yet he is more polished for the seat and has more support on the ground than Mr. Facebook [implying Segirinya].

Being parish councilors, we are close to the community and we know how voters think about these different aspirants. It’s our view that Segirinya isn’t the best to represent NUP interest.

National Unity Platform (NUP) LC flag bearers for Kawempe North denounce Muhammad Ssegirinya as MP flag bearer. Charles Sserubiri, the NUP coordinator for Kawempe North says 40 out of the 47 councilors have signed the petition protesting the party’s decision. They say Ssegirinya is not suitable for the position, given his “nature and character”.#MonitorUpdates 🎥 Damali Mukhaye

We shall naturally back Kyagulanyi for Presidency and someone else who will be easy to sell to the voters for the MP Seat,” one of the councilors anonymously tipped us.  The same councilor explained that fielding Segirinya as official NUP candidate will actually propel Latif Sebaggala to secure 4th term or at worst deliver the constituency to John Fischer Kasenge of the NRM.

This Website also understands that the return of Latif Sebaggala for the Kawempe North MP Seat has prompted his key ally Shifrah Lukwago to consider bowing out to enable Latif grow his chances at re-election. “That means more planning and prudent decision making by us as NUP grass root leaders. We shall make sure we publicly rally behind Kidandala so that Kamwokya doesn’t lose out completely because their Mohammed Segirinya is simply not electable,” says another NUP flag bearer for the councilor position in Kawempe North.
