As 2026 temperature start heating Up, Sources in Serere District have said that a powerful junior Minister under the Gender, Labour and Social Development Ministry is allegedly and secretly eyeing to run for Serere District Woman Member of Parliament race.
Serere District seat is currently being occupied by Fisheries Minister Hellen Adoa who was elected for the second time after defeating Her rival Alice Alaso Asianut.
If this comes true, both Minister Adoa and the other minister (Names withheld) will have to be subjected to the National Resistance Movement – NRM party internal democracy before the winner is declared. The winner of NRM will meet the other candidates from other political Parties like National Unity Platform, NEED Uganda and Alliance for National Transformation – ANT.
The Opposition Forum for Democratic Change – FDC Party is said to be not fronting a candidate for the race after their former flag bearer candidate Agnes Asegge crossing to NRM.
We are told that FDC supporters are consolidating their love behind Adoa once the NRM makes her a flag bearer.
Our snoops have since learnt that the powerful junior Minister who her relationship with a section of voters including her immediate family members is worrying has started frequenting the district doing a series of activities and offering support that sources claim is a secret reconciliation means.
The Minister is a born of Kamod – Serere under Kasilo County but married in Tororo. The Junior Minister yesterday, December 16, 2022, donated close to 1000 seats and other assortments to the Anglican Archdeaconry in Kasilo County..
The Bishop of Soroti Anglican Diocese Rt. Rev. Kosea Odongo who received the support on behalf of the church prayed for God’s guidance and protection on the Minister before adding that “Let all those planning to contest with you first go to heaven.”
While in Kyere town Council the Minister for Fisheries Adoa had hinted of a plot by some leaders in Serere to front a person to contest with her in the NRM Primaries.
She made the remarks in the presence of Kasilo MP Elijah Okupa and Serere County MP Patrick Okabe whom she warned that must she fail in the NRM Primaries she will also make sure someone doesn’t retain his seat.
