President Yoweri Museveni has today met and held discussions with the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Party flag bearer for Butaleja district Andiru Florence Nebanda and other candidates who lost out in the party primaries.

The meeting aimed at creating harmony ahead of the February 11 polls followed the party primaries in which Nebanda polled 38, 978 votes against her close rival Ms Allen Wegulo, who got 4,950. Other candidates in the race were Ms Aidah Hadoto, who got 4,076 votes, Ms Betty Nesihwe who polled 4,068, Ms Mary Mboira, who got 987 votes and Ms Sarah Namusabi got 622 votes.
The meeting was held at the President’s country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhuura district and was attended by the Minister without portfolio, Hon. Richard Todwong, the Deputy Secretary General of NRM, Ms. Dorothy Hyuha, the NRM Elections Commissioner, Professor Elijah Mushemeza, and Butaleja RDC, Ms. Martha Asiimwe, among others.

The seat fell vacant last month following the death of Hon. Cerinah Nebanda.
