This might be beyond cheap gossip. There are unconfirmed sources that the ruling party is planning to front New Vision’s Chief Executive Officer Robert Kabushenga to contest for post of Lord Mayor -Kampala. Credible sources at NRM Head offices say the public will be surprised at last moment when the party fronts Kabushega to unseat Erias Lukwago. Lukwago recently expressed interest to contest for this post.
Sources say, Kabushega has in the recent past used different platforms and corporate Social responsibility activities to popularize himself for the seat. Among the many activities he has been actively involved include Buganda Kingdom activates.
Reliable sources say Kabushega has been involved in a number of meetings with NRM loyalists and he is said to be using several platforms including Vision group and the Catholic Church not only push his bid but also popularize himself. Kabushega sits on the committee that is planning the visit of Pope Francis due next month.
Our sources say Kabushega will not go through NRM primaries but instead chose to be fronted as an independent.
