Kampala Woman MP, Nabilah Naggayi Sempala, has now set her eyes on the presidency after 2021.

Nabilah has already been duly nominated at UMA conference hall Lugogo to take part in the race for Kampala Woman MP in 2016 elections.

After her nomination, Nabilah said she will be serving her last term if re-elected in 2016.

“It will be my last term. I am not the kind of person who says something and I don’t mean it,” she said.

“I want to do other things,” Nabilah said, adding that she would also give a shot at the presidency once she retires from parliament.

Nabilah, a Social Scientist/ Linguist, belongs to the FDC (Forum for Democratic Change).

She has a Masters degree in Public Administration from Makerere University [2011], Ba Arts Hons Languages German French, Makerere University [1996] and a Diploma In Translation, Saarland University Germany [1994].

She has served as a Member on the Committee on Tourism, Trade and member on Committee on Human Rights Affairs of Parliament.

Recently, she was reported to had defected to Go Forward camp after being sighted in Amama Mbabazi’s Nakasero office.

In a statement, Nabilah denied the allegation saying she was not at liberty to endorse any other presidential candidate apart from FDC‘s Kizza Besigye.

“I am FDC, a NEC member and my party has a flag bearer, Dr. Kiiza Besigye.”

She continued: “I dislike the insinuation ( the author most likely related their post to the Besigye – Muntu contest) that takes me back to our internal processes that saw me pitted against KB because I supported Gen. Muntu for flag bearer at Namboole.”

“Regardless of our internal Party dynamics, inclinations or beliefs, I am convinced that all of us in the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) are joined together in the common goal of ensuring the happiness, prosperity and well-being of Ugandans. As our slogan says; One Uganda-One People!”

Supports gays

In September 2014, Nabilah was spotted attending a gay wedding in California USA.

Nabilah was photographed posing with a white couple who had just tied the knot.

In an interview with Talk Stream Network conducted by Michelle Meow, Nabilah said she was proud of her culture and religion but at the same time, accepts other cultures and religions.

She said the gay community in Kampala was real and “I have severally interacted with all of them and done activism work with and for all”.

Nabilah, a human rights activist, met Ugandans in San Francisco, California who are publicly gay following the signing of anti-gay bill early last year.

“What human rights are important in the west, like rights for the gays should be a subset of the general human rights situation in Uganda!” she said clarifying that there were several acts against basic human rights in Uganda, citing the Public Order Management Act that prohibits freedom of assembly.


Others nominated to run for Kampala Woman MP include NRM the flagbearer, Aisha Nabisere.
