KAMPALA-SHIFTMEDIA- Earlier today, the National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine met all Councillors from Kampala ahead of the elections for KCCA Speakership.
The meeting according to inside sources was to create harmony and unity so as to avoid having National Unity Councillors diverting votes.
The efforts of the meeting have paid off, now we can report that the former Makerere University Guild President Julius Kateregga who was among the contestants has withdrawn from the KCCA speakership race.
Kateragga has withdrawn and decided to support Makindye Councillor Zahara Luyiika who happens to be the National Unity Platform (NUP) flag bearer.
Kategregga, who was running as an independent further revealed that he made the decision after constant engagement with NUP senior party members.
‘After constant engagement with the Senior Party Members, Religious Leaders, and Other Opinion Leaders. I withdraw my Candidacy for Speakership of the City.I give full Support to Our NUP flag bearer Madam Zahara Luyurika.” Kateregga posted.
Kateregga, who also doubles as Makerere Lord councilor was going to battle Rubaga North’s Hakim Kizza and Counsel Jeremiah Keeya Mwanje for the speakership position.
He had earlier indicated that he would contest as an independent after it emerged that the NUP flag bearer, wouldn’t manage to handle affairs in Kampala City.
