Ssuubi 2011 may not have won last year’s elections in Buganda as it had set out, but it has achieved some milestones, one of which is the election of Muwanga Kivumbi as Butambala MP on Wednesday.
Last-minute efforts by President Yoweri Museveni and First Lady Janet Museveni were not enough to save the ruling party from yet another by-election loss, as voters in Butambala rejected calls by the NRM party boss to vote for Faisal Ssali Kikulukunyu in order for them to benefit from government programmes.
