MINISTER NAMUGANZA TO TUSSLE IT OUT WITH KADAGA FOR NRM’S TOP POSITION

The State Minister of Lands, Princess Persis Namuganza has picked forms to stand against Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga for the position of National Resistance Movement 2nd Vice Chairperson.

Namuganza surprised onlookers at NRM electoral commission offices today when she demanded for the forms for the position currently occupied by Kadaga.

The development comes a day after Kadaga returned forms to Kyadondo for the same post.

Kadaga was yesterday welcomed at NRM electoral commission offices by supporters and admirers including former Housing Minister, Sam Engola, who is also the vice chairman NRM for the northern region and Abdu Naduli, the Buganda region vice chair.

Kadaga, the highest ranking woman in government, told the media yesterday that she has committed herself for the women and the party.

Namuganza, a princess from Bukono Chiefdom disagreed with Kadaga and the entire Busoga Kingdom leadership when Kyabazinga Prince Gabula Nadiope was installed.

Namuganza, who wanted prince Columbus Wambuzi of Bulamogi to be the Kyabazinga, took a personal conflict with Kadaga and the latest development is not going to surprise many who remember the conflict.
