2026 Election Fever Sparks Clash Between Rukiga Woman MP and Colleagues

Kamusiime Muhwezi (kneeling) asked her voters to reelect her in 2026.

Rukiga District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Rukiga District Kabale Diocese Bishop’s Annual Appeal Fund (BAAF) fundraising event at Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament Kitanga parish in Kashambya Sub-county, Rukiga district, aimed to support the development of St. Ignatius University Kabale under the Kabale diocese. However, it unexpectedly turned into a political campaign for the 2026 Rukiga District Woman Representative in Parliament. The event was presided over by Kabale Diocesan Bishop Callistus Rubaramira and attracted several prominent figures, including 12 parliamentarians, among whom Herbert Ariko (Soroti City East), Dr. Twaha Kagabo (Bukot South), Mohammed Senkai (Bukoto West), and more.

The unexpected political discussions for the 2026 Rukiga District Woman Representative Seat began when Abigail Atukunda urged support for Dr. Sylvia Arinaitwe Mwanaki over the incumbent Caroline Kamusiime Muhwezi. Abigail’s words led to confusion among the visiting MPs, resulting in declarations of allegiance to either Caroline Kamusiime or Dr. Sylvia Arinaitwe Mwanake. Caroline Kamusiime expressed her disappointment at her fellow MPs’ allegiance to Dr. Sylvia and emphasized the need for the people of Rukiga to entrust their leadership choices to God.

Molly Asiimwe (Rwampara Woman) and Jenifer Abaho Muheesi (Kazo Woman) urged the people of Rukiga to continue supporting Caroline Kamusiime. Annet Mugisha, the Bushenyi Woman Member of Parliament, clarified that they were invited to the function by Dr. Sylvia Arinaitwe and expressed her long-standing relationship with Dr. Sylvia.

Rukiga County MP Rolland Ndyomugyenyi Bish expressed gratitude to the Kabale diocese for supporting education through St. Ignatius University and emphasized that his focus on the Public Accounts Committee was aimed at combating corruption, dismissing accusations of engaging in political battles.

Dr. Sylvia Arinaitwe Mwanake, as the Chief Guest, advocated for subsistence farming for community development and donated 105 Million Shillings.

Kabale Diocesan Bishop Callistus Rubaramira emphasized that the function’s purpose was not political but centered on development. He assured both candidates that he would pray for them and left the rest to God.
