Former Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) commissioner Dicksons Kateshumbwa on Thursday picked nomination forms seeking to contest for the Sheema Municipality MP seat on the ruling National Resistance Movement Party (NRM) ticket.
Accompanied by his supporters, Mr Kateshumbwa received the nomination forms and vowed to transform Sheema Municipality using his management experience at URA.
He is set to challenge Science and Technology minister Tumwesigye Elioda for the NRM flag.
“After serving my country at URA for 15 years, I have decided to use the experience, networks and relationships gained in those fourteen years to support in the development of my home, Sheema but also the country at large,” he said.
“Sheema Municipality, being a town, is primarily a trading community. I look forward to using my over 15 years’ experience in URA and my representation in parliament to continue shaping a progressive taxation regime that fosters the growth and development of my people in Sheema, but also the country at large,” he added.
The NRM road map indicates that between Thursday and Friday, Members will express interest by picking nomination forms for Woman MPs, directly elected MPs, LC 5 chairpersons, and city mayors.
