Kampala Central Woman MP Nabilah Naggayi Sempala has been named the National Unity Platform (NUP) Kampala mayoral candidate.
According to Mercy Walukamba, the Chairperson of the NUP election management committee, Naggayi beat Kuruda Ssali after they respectively polled after polling 166 and 87 points out of 200.
The two who applied for the Mayoral race appeared before a panel of judges who asked him various questions regarding the mayoral race.
“With the power vested upon me as the electoral management committee chairperson, I therefore declare Nabilah Naggayi Sempala as the NUP flag bearer for the position of Kampala Lord Mayor,” she announced.
She said Naggayi stands a test of being confirmed by the Party board.
A few days ago, Nabira quitted the leading opposition party, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) for NUP after he was denied party ticket for mayoral race in the 2021 elections.
