I Need Four Terms in Parliament – Minister Nabakooba

Information and ICT Minister Hon Judith Nabakooba has appealed to the Mityana district electorate to consider for another term in office.

Nabakooba, who recently joined cabinet says she needs more time to fulfil all the promises she has made to her voters.

She has been the Mityana district woman MP since 2016.

Just three years into her term, she was appointed in Cabinet by President Yoweri Museveni.

Speaking in her officer at parliament today, Nabakooba said she needed more time to come through on all her development plans for her home district.

“The people of Mityana district, I want to let you know that I am still with you. I need at least four terms; therefore, this coming one, I ask for your support. I have been around and I have done a lot for the ordinary person and you know all that I have done,” she said.

The former police spokesman easily trounced journalist Joyce Bagala of the Democratic Party in the 2016 election.

She however, faced a lot of backlash later in 2017 when she supported the controversial age limit constitutional amendment.

In September 2017 as parliament debated the amendment, Nabakooba was attacked by a group of supporters who hurled stones and other projectiles at her in protest.

The 2021 elections are already heating up with potential candidates taking to various media platforms to seek political mandate.

With physical rallies banned because of Covid19, there is a projected unprecedented pressure on media houses as political contenders seek space to address voters.
