KAMPALA – Outspoken human rights activist and Makerere University researcher Dr Stella Nyanzi on Monday, June 29, 2020, picked nomination forms, expressing interest to stand for the Kampala Woman MP seat on the FDC seat.
Dr Nyanzi said her nomination was proposed by FDC Vice Chairperson for central region Owekitiibwa Joyce Sebugwawo and seconded by Buwembo Habib and Fred Bugoba
“Today, I collected my “Expression of Interest” and “Nomination for Party Primaries” forms from the party headquarters of FDC. I also renewed my party membership for 2020. I am extremely grateful to my proposer the Vice Chairperson of FDC – Owekitiibwa Joyce Sebugwawo, and my seconders who include Buwembo Habib and Fred Bugoba,” she said.
“My aspirations for the Kampala Woman Member of Parliament seat are now firm. I am preparing hard for the party primaries. My focus is going to be on representing the minorities in Kampala. Many MPs, when they reach parliament, they forget the issues of every day man and woman. They forget issue of unemployed youth who form majority of our voters and issues of labour among others,” Dr Nyanzi added.
