Late Kadir’s Son, Uthuman Mubarak, Wins Hoima NRM Primaries

Hoima District | The Black Examiner – Uthuman Mugisa Mubarak has emerged victorious in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) primaries for the Hoima district LCV Chairperson position. The election results, announced by Dr Tanga Odoi, the NRM party Electoral Commission Chairman, revealed that Mugisa Mubarak secured 11,318 votes, clinching 53.4% of the total votes.

The victory is particularly significant as Mugisa Mubarak is the youngest candidate and the son of the late Kadir Kirungi, the former Hoima District Local Government Chairman. This family legacy seemed to resonate with voters, as Mugisa Mubarak’s campaign garnered widespread support.

The race was further characterized by the participation of other candidates, including John Kwemara with 720 votes, Jackson Magambo Mulindamburra with 126 votes, and Moses Byahuka Mutagwa with 113 votes. Samuel Milton Byaruhanga, known as Kyakadongo, obtained six votes, marking the end of the list.

The NRM party Secretary for Hoima District, Mr David Maxwell Kaboyo, urged all party members, including the unsuccessful candidates, to unite behind Mugisa Mubarak to ensure a successful campaign in the final election.

Following his declaration as the winner, Mugisa Mubarak expressed his commitment to collaborative efforts, pledging to work with all stakeholders, including his fellow contenders, to foster a spirit of unity within the party.

Mugisa Mubarak’s campaign was notable for its vigorous activity throughout the electoral process. His determination stood out, especially when his opponents initially attempted to rally for a single candidate approach. Despite their efforts to seek advice from President Museveni, the NRM party Chairman, the attempts were unsuccessful.
