Independent candidate and media personality Joan Lule Nakintu was shocked after she was turned away by the Mpigi district returning officer, Flavia Mujulizi, because she failed to produce the original marriage certificate.

Nakintu, who is aspiring for the position of Woman MP Mpigi district, was one of the aspirants who turned up on the first day of nominations.

There was drama after she came out of the room and ran to her car, leaving her supporters who had accompanied her in suspense.

Nakintu was nominated three hours later after producing the original marriage certificate.

Speaking to journalists after her nomination, Nakintu said she had carried a copy of an affidavit, but she was asked to produce the original marriage certificate.

Other candidates who were nominated on the first day include city lawyer Yusuf Nsibambi of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) for Mawokota South; Dr Joel Mirembe (National Unity Platform — NUP) for Mawokota South; Eng. Joseph Walakira (independent) for Mawokota South; Teddy Nambooze (NUP), Woman MP, Mpigi, the incumbent Woman MP Sarah Nakawunde (National Resistance Movement), and former Mawokota South MP Joseph Kiyingi Bbosa (independent).

All candidates were not allowed to bring crowds at the nomination centre and this, together with other standard operating procedures, were followed by the candidates.

Nakawunde said she is coming back to complete the programmes which she had started in the district.
