AMELIA Kyambadde, the NRM flag- bearer for Mawokota North Parliamentary seat has asked her supporters to be alert and avoid drinking alcohol before casting their votes.

“There are some people who are planning to give out alcohol mixed with chloroform on the voting day. These people want to make you fail to vote,” Kyambadde said.
Kyambadde who addressed a rally at Mpigi Police grounds told supporters that her long career in public service and her development projects in the area would transform Mawokota.

She was accompanied by a fleet of cars, boda boda cyclists, and supporters all dressed in yellow attires, singing NRM slogans.
She also held another rally at her opponent’s home area Peter Claver Mutuluza, in Kamengo Sub-County where she was showered with gifts.

Police was deployed heavily to maintain peace as Mutuluza was holding another rally in the area. At the Police grounds, supporters gave her a new motorcycle and a goat.

Kyambadde has graded all roads in the constituency and built churches and mosques without discrimination.
At both venues, Kyambadde asked people to report any kind of intimidation to the security personnel during the election day.

At the two rallies she said, “I have been pregnant for long and it’s now time to deliver the baby I have been carrying.”

To prove her commitment to work with Buganda, she introduced Princess Ndagire, who also praised Kyambadde’s efforts to fight for Buganda issues.
Ndagire said Kyambadde is the only person who can bridge the gap between Central government and Buganda. She stressed that Kyambadde has done a lot for royal family to get back most of their property.

Though Kyambadde is contesting against two candidates; DP’s Vincent Mayanja and Mutuluza (Independent), the race is between her and Mutuluza because of their influence in the area.

Mutuluza, also the incumbent, shunned the party primaries leaving Kyambadde to go through unopposed.

“This is my area and people still want me to represent them. I am their rightful candidate and I am sure of winning,” Mutuluza said.
