As we head for the 2021 general elections Ntugamo district is one of the districts to watch since most of the political candidates have a root in Ntugamo. 

To start with Kataha Museveni this is her home district and she started her education journey at Kyamate primary school and currently she is the NRM chairperson of the district. 

President Museveni has also roots in Ntugamo he was born in this district before his parents moved to Rwakitura. Another candidate who comes from Ntugamo is the Alliance for National Transformation party candidate Mugisha Muntu who also comes from Ntugamo district and he is taken to be a darling in the district.

The National Unity Platform candidate Kyagulanyi’s wife Barbie also comes from this district and Kyagulanyi is also a force to watch out in the district as we head for the general elections. 

The NRM Vice president for western region Dr Chris Balyomunsi urged the people of Ntugamo not to vote for Kyagulanyi but instead do what the people of Kanungu did when they voted for Museveni instead of Mbabazi who was coming from this district.
