Local Ugandan Artistes Ragga Dee and Judith Babirye emerged victorious in the NRM primaries yesterday and are only left with one more huddle to be elected in power come next year’s general elections.
Ragga Dee real names Dan Kazibwe was able to overcome Francis Babu in the NRM primaries to represent the ruling party in the upcoming elections next year for the post of Kampala city Mayor. He will be up against NTV and FDC’s Miles Rwamiti and Elias Lukwago from DP if the rumors of his return for the same post are anything to go by.
“I’m so grateful to those who came and voted. I promise to deliver the best I can especially to the ghetto person who’s views have always been neglected. It hasn’t been easy in these Primaries but I thank God for this victory.” Ragga Dee said immediately he was announced the winner.
On the other hand, Judith Babirye comfortably won in Buikwe and will also represent NRM in next year’s heated up elections but already, the ‘Maama’ artiste is tipped to be the favorite to become the Woman Member of Parliament of that district from Busoga region.
If the two are successful next year, they will join another prominent Tanzanian artiste called Professor Jay who was also recently elected as a Member of Parliament in te just concluded general elections.
