TOP CONTENDER FOR IEC JOB? Former Attorney General Fred Ruhindi

Former Nakawa Member of Parliament, Fredrick Ruhindi has been tipped to become the next Electoral Commission boss.

According to credible sources, Ruhindi, a former Attorney General and Minister for Constitutional Affairs will replace Eng. Badru Kiggundu whose tenure reportedly ends at the end of this month.

The soft-spoken Ruhindi lost the Nakawa seat to Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Michael Kabaziguruka, and has since then withdrawn to private life.

Earlier reports had indicated that Ruhindi was set to replace Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) boss Jennifer Musisi as the Executive Director.

A lawyer by profession, Ruhindi served as minister for 10 years.

Asked whether he is aware of the new deployment, Ruhindi said “I don’t know anything”
