Intense Hoima By-Election Campaigns End, NRM’s Mubaraka Optimistic About Victory

HOIMA – The Hoima District by-election campaigns were yesterday concluded after 14 days of intense voter mobilization to select the NRM flag bearer, Uthuman Mugisha Mubaraka.

With the Electoral Commission setting September 12 as the campaign deadline, Prime Minister Nabbanja made a last-minute appeal to residents, emphasizing that an NRM candidate would collaborate effectively with the government to address Hoima’s needs.

Namayanja underscored the NRM’s track record in advocating for the well-being of citizens, dating back to the liberation struggles in the 1980s, and urged voters to consider the accomplishments of the NRM government in Hoima district and city, such as improved infrastructure and a thriving economy due to peace.
