KAMPALA — The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has said it feels sorry for National Unity Platform (NUP) for granting the party flag for Kampala Lord Mayor to Naggayi Nabilah Sempala.
Nabilah had sought the FDC flag in July but was denied on account that she had returned nomination forms late.
But after she was granted the NUP flag, FDC said the Kampala Woman MP should not be trusted.
“We wish honourable Nabilah all the best but if she keeps playing politics the way she has been doing in FDC, then I want to feel sorry for NUP. If Nabilah changes the way she plays politics, she can be a very good politician. But if she doesn’t, NUP should be careful,” FDC party spokesman Ibrahim Semujju Nganda said on Monday, 28 September 2020.
Nabilah was granted the NUP flag after she defeated Ssali Cudrah who scored 87 out of the available 200 points while Nabilah garnered 166 out of 200 point.
Speaking to the press shortly after the declaration, Nabilah hit back at the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) which denied her a ticket back in July this year.
Nabilah said: “FDC are women beaters. I am not the only lady who left. Where is the leader of opposition? I am glad that I have got a party which respects me as a woman.”
