Namugala attributes MMD loss of Mpongwe Parliamentary by-election to poor leadership in the party


Opposition Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) Mafinga Member of Parliament (MP) Catherine Namugala has attributed the loss by her party in the Mpongwe Parliamentary by-election to poor leadership in MMD.
Ms Namugala, however, congratulated Gabriel Namulambe for bouncing back as Mpongwe MP on the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) ticket.
Ms Namugala said in Parliament today during the 30-minute Vice President’s session question time that it was very unfortunate that the MMD has failed to defend the Parliamentary seat in Mpongwe, which she claimed was its stronghold.
“Mr Speaker Sir, MMD has dropped to number three in the Mpongwe parliamentary seat because of poor leadership in my party. This is very sad. However, I would like to congratulate the ruling PF and Mr Namulambe for retaining his seat on the ruling PF ticket,” Ms Namugala said.
In response, Vice President Dr Guy Scott counseled Ms Namugala and the entire opposition MMD to accept defeat because it has happened.
