Ntungamo NRM Aspirant Bows Out of Primaries
The Ntungamo district National Resistance Movement (NRM) party vice chairperson Ivan Asiimwe Rutahweire, who was contesting for the Kajara County MP seat, has withdrawn his candidature following a meeting with the First Lady, Janet Museveni.
The party secretary general, Wilberforce Mugyenyi confirmed the meeting and the move is aimed at avoiding chaos during this Friday’s NRM primaries.
Rutahweire had been nominated to contest against Twamuhaabwa Wilson Kadiidi and the incumbent, Michael Timuzigu Kamugisha, who fell out with party ranks after voting against the lifting of the age limit in 2017.
The Ntungamo district party registrar, Maria Mirembe, confirmed the withdrawal of Rutahweire and two others from the race.
