As the 2021 election fever rises, a town council chairperson in Kyotera District has disowned his daughter for expressing interest to run against him in next year’s election.
Mr. Godfrey Kimera, the chairperson of Kasaali Town Council, describes Reginah Nakiweewa’s decision as an act of disrespect.
He said she could have vied for any other post and not the one he currently holds. Mr. Kimera has since disowned his daughter.
Ms Nakiweewa says her father, who is a Democratic Party (DP) member, promised to serve for only two terms when he was elected chairperson in 2011. At that time, Kasaali was still a sub-county, but was elevated to a town council in July 2017 after Kyotera became a district.
The 30-year-old Nakiweewa however says she is not intimidated by the threats from her father. ENDS
