This is the second election in a row… where Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi have lost in a race to become a Member of Parliament. She has flagged two different parties and races. Still, she has not able to succeed.
In 2016 she ran on a Democratic Party (DP) ticket for the Kampala Woman MP and lost to another opposition candidate. However, she bounced back and was appointed to a Ministry as a “broad-based” cabinet member. Nevertheless, with some time in office she became a National Resistance Movement Member too.
So, in 2021 she stood in another race in Masaka as a NRM MP aspirant. Florence didn’t succeed there either. This time trying the less competitive seat of Bukomansimbi NRM Woman MP. Even with the ruling party and the machinery behind her. She still couldn’t bounce back and win. That says it all.
Twice she has lost in two different races for two different parties. Nakiwala Kiyingi have become a loyal cadre of the NRM. In a manner, which is typical for the ones who has found a meal-ticket there. Therefore, nobody should be shocked by her defence and her manners.
Still, she is crying out for the losses in Buganda or Central Uganda in this election. However, she knows perfectly well what happened. Not like there has been major shifts or proof of love for the regime in the Republic. The Republic is tired of the NRM and Museveni. They are voting in defiance of the party and for others hopefully with integrity. The NRM will not bring change and the party have had its time.
Nakiwala Kiyingi did her career move in 2016 when she went from DP to be an appointed minister. Later changed parties too and become another one of the opposition going full yellow. The green turned yellow.
She told in December 2020 not to vote for “jokers”. They clearly followed her advice and didn’t vote her in. She is crying out and being insincere. Just as everyone who is working for their own benefit and not properly representing their constituency. It is just like doesn’t understand the wave or understood the message of the opposition. As a career politician she should know better.
Complaining about the “Scientific Elections” and “election violence” hampering her plans and messages to the constituents. If she was so daring about both. She should have addressed the mischief and concern that happened to the NUP during the campaigns in Masaka. We know these we’re brutal and people died. Still, she doesn’t care about them, but how it hurt her campaigning. It says it all about her entitlement and self-belief of superiority.
It is a reason why she has lost twice. She’s not it and doesn’t have it in her. Neither is she loyal or honest. Another meal-ticket politician hitting a nose-dive and hoping to get a new appointment. Maybe, become an envoy or Presidential Advisor. Don’t be shocked if that happens. However, don’t expect her to do magic. She is just another crony in the limbo. As she has nowhere to go, but beg the President for further favours. Peace.
