Daniel Kazibwe, popularly known as Ragga Dee has hands down defeated Ssebana Kizito for the hotly contested Kampala Lord Mayoral seat. The two were running to represent NRM in general elections.
Kazibwe’s victory was announced by the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Electoral Commission chaired by Tanga Odoi after a recount was done. Ragga Dee beat Ssebana with 56,877 votes representing 78.19% with the latter walking away with a meager 15,939 which accounts for about 21.9%.
The Commissioner NRM Electoral Commission, Jane Alisemera, said they were forced to do a recount of the votes after Ssebana filed a petition claiming he was cheated.
With the counting process re-done, Daniel Kazibwe aka Ragga Dee still emerged victorious much to Ssebana’s dismay. Ragga Dee will for the second time now contest for the position of Lord Mayor against the incumbent Ssalongo Erias Lukwago of FDC and NUP’s Joseph Mayanja popularly known by his stage name, Jose chameleon among others.
