Kawempe North Member of Parliament, Latif Ssebaggala is set to contest again, as independent, in Kawempe North, after going back and forth on the matter.
Last month, Ssebaggala, who had earlier on expressed interest in running for Kampala Lord Mayor in the forthcoming 2021 general election, and was subsequently handed the National Unity Platform ticket to hold their flag, resigned from the race and said that he will soon announce his next move.
With the NUP having handed its ticket for Kampala Lord Mayor to Nabilah Naggayi Sempala and that of Kawempe North to Mohammed Ssegirinya, Ssebaggala has now made a u-turn, and decided that he will run in the constituency that he has represented for 20 years, as an independent.
On Sunday, as Ssebaggala’s family unveiled their members who will be contesting in 2021 general elections, mourners were surprised to see Ssebagala being unveiled as a candidate.
This website has since established that he will be contesting in Kawempe North.
Our efforts to get a comment from Ssebagala proved futile as he could not pick his calls and this reporter’s messages were not replied to.
This website also understands that Ssebaggala will soon hold a press conference to officially announce his bid.
