Since the commencement of campaigning across the district to succeed the late chairman Kadir Kirungi, whose tragic demise occurred in a fatal accident on the Kampala-Hoima road on March 17th, 2023, an air of enthusiasm has enveloped the region.

This period has seen various candidates, representing different political parties, embark on their journey to replace the fallen leader.

The landscape of contenders has been shaped by the opening of the race, with NRM primaries slated for August 28th, 2023, and the final cross-party election set for September 14th, 2023.

On the other hand, opposition parties, particularly the National Unity Platform (NUP), appear to be grappling with indecision regarding their candidate selection for the LC5 by-election.

Among the contestants, Uthman Mubarak has emerged as a frontrunner, leading the pack in the quest for the LC5 seat. This ascent to prominence has not been without its challenges, as his fellow NRM candidates and supporters have expressed concerns about his perceived political immaturity, leading to some degree of animosity.

However, Uthman remains steadfast and undeterred by the discord, demonstrating his resilience and commitment to his cause. Despite facing criticism, he is poised to potentially become Uganda’s youngest-ever LC5 chairman, a testament to his determination and vision for the district’s future.

Responding to critiques of inexperience and political immaturity, the 26-year-old candidate highlighted his achievements as an NRM cadre. He pointed out that none of his opponents hold such a position and emphasized his commitment to learning.

“I see that as an attack to the NRM electoral commission, they seem to be saying the EC nominated an incompetent candidate, I’m an NRM cadre and none of the aspirants is a cadre yet,” said Uthman.
