SHEEMA – The brother of Dicksons Kateshumbwa, the former URA Commissioner in-charge of customs, has stepped down from his position as chairman Electoral Commission for Sheema District for fear of conflict of interest in the upcoming elections.
In a letter dated June 26, 2020, John Kateshumbwa said since his younger brother Dicksons is seeking the NRM party flag for Sheema Municipality, it would be prudent for him to set aside temporarily.
“This is to inform you that my brother Dickson Kateshumbwa has expressed interest to stand for the position of Member of Parliament for Sheema Municipality 2021-2026 on the NRM ticket,” reads part of his resignation letter.
In his letter, he recommended Mr. Frank Ahimbisibwe his vice to conduct NRM Primaries.
Dicksons Kateshumbwa is set to battle it out with the incumbent, Dr Elioda Tumwesigye, and other candidates, for the NRM party flag.
