Dr. Micheal Lulume Bayiga has been hit hard by Mutebi David of NRM. Bayiga a medical doctor has been MP since 2008. He rose through the DP ranks starting out from university as a member of the DP youth group, the Uganda Young Democrats. He was the opposition shadow minister for health in 2011.

A cross section of DP supporters in Buikwe district announced recently that they had abandoned Bayiga in favour of NRM's burly and broad shouldered Mutebi saying for eight years Bayiga has been promising them air and not helped develop the district.

Brenda Nabukenya, the Luwero Woman MP has been silently strangled out of her enviable seat by Lillian Segujja Nakatte of NRM.  Nabukenya had promised to serve for only two terms but has managed only one.

Nabukenya, a political enigma was the first female guild president in 2005 at Kyambogo University.

Court had nullified the election of Nabukenya in 2012 but in the heated by election, she won Rebecca Nalwanga, of NRM, a close contestant in the race then who sought court intervention.

 In Parliament she was member, committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, and Committee on Government Assurances but she was rather silent.
