National Resistance Movement party supporters in Nakasongola district and in Buruuli county in particular are said to be divided on whom to front for next elections due to the passing on of former Attorney General Peter Nyombi.
It is said the Nyombi family is as well divided on who to front given that three people have shown signs of carrying on the programme of late Nyombi. The three are Ambassador Henry Mayega, Nyombi’s young brother and Uganda’s Deputy Head of Mission in China, Andrew Nyombi, the son to the late Nyombi and Ms Julian Nyombi, the wife to late Nyombi.
Sources say that although by the time of his death Nyombi was out of parliament, he had continued with his programmes of development, rural electrification, and extension of clean water among others. During his sendoff, he was credited with helping the needy and offering free legal services especially in land matters to the poor.
Majority of the voters in the area consider the constituency of being politically orphanage given that the sitting Member of Parliament is new in parliament and hasn’t grasped issues.
Nyombi died of heart attack and was buried last Thursday in Nakasongola town council.
