THE race for Member of Parliament representing Iki-iki County in Budaka district will be another hot one, businessman Lukka Kagenyi of Kagenyi Holdings has officially declared his intention to unseat MP Ronald Kasolo.
Kagenyi will tussle it out with Kasolo in NRM primaries announced by the Party Headquaters in Kampala on Friday July 17th 2020.
Addressing media on Satuday about his intention to contest for Iki-iki County MP, Mr. Kagenyi advised the incumbent not to waste his money and time returning because NRM voters are ready to embarrass him.
“He is very quiet in Parliament. It’s as if he went there for a visit. Tell him to pack up and leave, Iki-iki must get a competent representative. Our Poeple’s voice must be heard in Parliament. Kagenyi is a dangerous substitute. I have come for serious business not for jokes.” Kagenyi who also owns a media company told this News Website in a private interview.
Iki-iki county is in Budaka district which is made up of Seven subcounties. They are; Iki-iki, Migiti, Kamonkoli, Sekulo , Katiira and Kameruka Subcounty.
Kagenyi has been spotted in the Constituency giving out solar power panels to Health Center lll and many homesteads.
He has done visible developments namely like giving out bodabodas to youth groups, distributing past papers to P.7, S. 4 and S.6 candidates who were sent back home due to Coronavirus outbreak.
