It seems opposition politicians in Uganda are not happy at all with Cedric Babu Ndilima’s political bid and have since assured him to go contest in Rwanda.
Although political observers say the Kinetic Management founder is set to become the National Resistance Movement (NRM’s) flagbearer for the Kampala Lord Mayoral seat, after getting First Son Gen. Muhozi Kainerugaba’s seal of approval, it seems he still has an uphill task of convincing voters in the opposition-strong Kampala central that he is the best candidate.
Cedric recently confided in close friends that in some areas, potential voters take one look at his posters and say to “oyo afanana Abanyarwanda agenda e Rwanda gyabayesimba.” This can be loosely translated to mean; “That one resembles Rwandese, he should go and contest there.
Cedric, who is son of former state minister for Housing Capt. Francis Babu and Olive Kigongo, is popular among the affluent in Kampala and ladies alike, surprised many people when he announced his intentions to oust the incumbent Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago in the forthcoming 2021 elections.
He is however likely to face the current Member of Parliament for Kampala Muhamad Nsereko and Forum for Democratic Change (FDC’s) deputy Secretary General Harold Kaija, who are also vying for the same position.
