NTV ‘Akawungeezi’ news reader and ‘Mwasuze Mutya’ presenter, Faridah Nakazibwe must be secretlty celebrating after her nemesis Justine Nameere lost in the NRM Central Region youth parliamentary primaries.
Nameere, a daughter to Agriculture minister, Vincent Ssempijja was over the weekend floored by Ms Agnes Kirabo.
The NRM electoral commission returning officer for Central Region youth MP elections, Ms Jane Alisemera Babiiha, declared Ms Agnes Kirabo as winner of the polls that attracted 11 contenders.
Ms Kirabo garnered 212 votes (44.4 per cent) and her closest rival Felix Kayihura got 98 votes (20.5per cent).
Ms Mastulah Nakibuule came third with 75 votes (15.7 per cent), Ms Justine Nameere got 35 votes (7.3 per cent), Mr Alvin Semambya collected 28 votes (5.9 percent) while Ms Joan Nanseko garnered 26 votes (5.4 per cent).
Nameere also lost at her home turf in Kalungu. Of the 13 youth delegates who cast their votes in Kalungu, only five voted in favour of Ms Nameere while Kayihura got six votes. Ms Kirabo and Ms Nakibuule received one vote each and the rest received zero.
One of the youth delegates who preferred said they Nameere lost because she is arrogant.
“Ms Nameere is arrogant and her father let her down because he promised youth in his constituency (Kalungu) some projects and Shs1m which he has failed to fulfil to date,” one of the youth delegates, said.
After suffering defeat, Nameere accused the NRM secretariat of failure to organize a free and fair election.
Our dear party NRM @NRMOnline you need to give special thought to how the NRM flag bearers are voted in the youth structures! It is a proper “market election” a despicable mockery of democracy! It is far from the NRM ideology and completely lets down our statesman @KagutaMuseveni
