Buhweju parliamentary seat lures 5 NRM aspirants all vying for the hotly contested slot

BUHWEJU- The Buhweju parliamentary seat is currently selling like hot cake after five NRM aspirants publically expressed interest to unseat the FDC incumbent, Francis Mwijukye.

The seat is currently occupied by FDC’s Hon Francis Mwijukye who defeated NRM’s Biraaro Ephraim to represent the people of Buhweju constituency.

Those who have already shown interest in the seat from the NRM are among others Nareeba Daniel, Professor Biraaro Ephraim Gashanga, Wilson Bebaaga, Ferdinand Kanyankore, and Sabiiti George.

Some of them in an interview with our reporter said that Buhweju has gained nothing being represented by the FDC who cannot sit at the same table with the ruling government.

These on the other hand still have hopes that the constituency might be sub divided into (Buhweju main and Buhweju West) increasing the chances of representation.

“If the proposed Buhweju west Constituency is approved, we can have an increase in Parliamentary representation and ease of service accessibility which our people have always longed for” the NRM aspirants told this online publication.

Daniel Nareeba who picked his nomination papers on Monday July 27th 2020, told our reporter that Buhweju needs a good leader who can unite people and have a strong voice for lobbying for them.

Nareeba said he is aiming at getting a ready market for tea and coffee farmers in Buhweju especially by initiating the startup of factories in the area and also make sure that the area has good roads to ease transportation of their products.

“Having served as the chief finance officer for Buhweju district, I know where to begin and bring back the glory of tea and coffee farmers who have for a long time decried fractuating prices for their main sources of income,” he said.

Nareeba who is a re-known tea farmer in Buhweju district said he is only waiting for nominations slated to take place from 10-11th August 2020.
