Opposition Democratic Party (DP) spokesperson, nurse http://consultants-lactation.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader-skin.php Kenneth Paul Kakande is under fire for campaigning for the incumbent Kampala Lord Mayor, this site Erias Lukwago instead of the official party flag bearer, ed Isa Kikungwe.
Kakande who is contesting for Nakawa Member of Parliament on the DP ticket has at different campaign rallies openly campaigned for Lukwago for the position of Lord Mayor which is against the party constitution.
Kakande has been heard stressing that supporting Lukwago has no harm since he is also a member of the Democratic Party.
“Kakande is under the effect of desperation that overruns most of the candidates during an election period; I am sure Lukwago’s delegation went to him and threatened him that if he didn’t support their candidate, he would be de-campaigned in Nakawa,” responded Norbert Mao the party president during a press briefing at City house.
“We understand that Kakande is under election panic but we shall find a way of helping him out because his actions are out of order and won’t achieve him anything. I am set to meet him so that we can talk over it,” Mao said.
Mao further accused Lukwago of refusing to accept the party ticket despite being begged by the party officials.
“We wrote to Lukwago to come and pick the party ticket and run unopposed but he declined to our request. As a party we therefore chose to front Isa Kikungwe.”
To that effect, Mao promised to hit the road and begin campaigning for all party candidates throughout the country with the aim of wining many elective positions in the coming general elections.
