TIGHT RACE: 5 candidates eye Mitooma district woman Parliamentary seat as Kamateeka seeks 3rd term

MITOOMA- The incumbent Mitooma district woman Member of Parliament, Hon. Jovah Kamateeka risks losing her seat as four strong female candidates have picked nominations to oust her from the coveted seat.

Hon. Jovah Kamateeka joined Parliament in 2011 and has already picked the NRM nomination forms to seek for the 3rd term to represent the people of Mitooma in the 11th Parliament.

However, some of the Mitooma district voters have continuously accused the legislator for not delivering to them as expected.

Currently, 4 women have already expressed interest in unseating Kamateeka, 3 being on NRM Ticket and another one coming as an independent.

The contestants include Arinaitwe Jacqueline Mugore, Juliet Agasha Bashisha, Muhaise Joan Ensinganto all of the ruling National Resistance Movement NRM and Namanya Kyarimpa Rebecca an independent.


Talking to Joan Muhaise, one of the contestants who picked her nomination forms on Thursday July 30th 2020, she said it’s high time to put an end to poor services in Mitooma district citing poor schools, poor health services among others.

“We have for a long time yawned for better service delivery and we have waited enough. This is therefore time to take action as youths in leadership positions,”said Ms Muhaise.

On the issue of development, Muhaise noted that she will focus much on standards of schools, health service delivery and ensuring that poverty is eradicated in the district.

One of the voters who identified himself as Atwiine Joshua from Bukuba in Kashenshero Sub-county told our reporter that Kamateeka has promised them a lot which she never fulfilled thus a need to change on the District’s leadership.

Ms. Jackline Kyaragaire from Mutara Sub County told this online publication that she hopes for the new beginning in new leadership adding that Kamateka did all they expected of him thus a need to taste a new leadership.She hopes that entrusting their votes with the votes with a youthful leader can boost the area’s development.
