“…instigating first-hand solutions to our communal problems will encourage a more sustainable environment to all the people of Kagoma North, including the vulnerable…” Mr Alex Kintu.

Jinja—4, January 2021: With only nine (9) days to the much-anticipated general elections on January 14, one candidate called Alex Brandon Kintu has stood out as a politician whose persistence and consistency will surely earn him a sure deal in the 11th parliament.

Kintu, 37, now proudly carrying the NRM flag, uses “unity in diversity and effective representation” as a key driving political and philosophical slogan to rally support from the population.

With the increasingly enlightened population, Mr Kintu popularly known as ‘musayi muto’ (young blood), believes in empowering the communities, especially the youth with timely, relevant information and skills.

Kagoma North which comprises Buwenge Town Council, Buwenge sub-county (rural) and Buyengo sub-county was carved from the mother Kagoma which hitherto was the biggest constituency in the district.

The creation of the new constituency followed a spirited contest staged by Kintu during 2017 by-election when the Court of Appeal kicked out Mr Moses Muwanika Walyomu (the incumbent) over irregularities and bribery.

It became common knowledge that Mr Kintu was a factor to reckon with after giving hard times to Mr Walyomu both in the constituency and court which prompted some leaders from Busoga to petition Parliament’s Speaker, Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga on the need for a new electoral area, hence Kagoma North.

Now the Kampala International University (KIU) graduate of development studies (DS) promises to be a result-oriented leader who will always serve as a messenger for the ordinary residents of the area.

“…instigating first-hand solutions to our communal problems will encourage a more sustainable environment to all the people of Kagoma North, including the vulnerable…” he stresses.

Contesting against six others, the NRM flag bearer also promises to address other challenges like inadequate funding to districts, lack of drugs and shortage of medical personnel in health centres, plus poor education, among others.

Married to a white lady, the proud father of two sons is not bothered by the NUP political wave sweeping in some places.

“The people of Kagoma North will vote NRM flag bearers, including President Yoweri Museveni for obvious reasons,” he added.
