The Rubanda district Chairman Jogo Kenneth Biryabarema has today picked NRM party nomination forms confirming his interest to run for the Rubanda East Member of Parliament in the next year’s NRM party primaries.

Biryabarema picked the nomination forms at exactly 11:30am today at the NRM Electoral Commission Offices Plot 13 Kyadondo road Kampala, after paying the 2 million shillings’ mandatory fee requirement.

Biryabarema is hopeful to unseat Hon Henry Musasizi who is seeking his third term as the Rubanda East Member of Parliament.

Speaking to the press shortly after picking the forms, Biryabarema asked his electorates to remain calm and avoid politics of segregation on lines of religion or political affiliations but rather embrace development for the betterment of their communities and the district.
