An energetic Kabale leader, Milton Kwesiga, says he is ready to occupy NRM rebel MP, Wilfred Niwagaba’s Ndorwa County East seat in Kabale District.
Milton Kwesiga born in Katiiba village in Muyebe parish, Buhara sub-county in Ndorwa East constituency on 24th October 1978 to Mr &Mrs Edward and Jane Kabashagamu.
He studied from Muyebe primary school, Buranga S.S where he became a head prefect, Kyazio driving school where he studied driving and mechanics, Cornerstone Leadership academy in Nakasongola where he was being sponsored by that organisation.
He later joined Makerere University on loan from Cornerstone development where he acquired a degree in environmental management in 2005.
He started working for Prime West environmental project immediately after campus.
Kwesiga later became a teacher at Bishop Barham University College.
In 2008, he enrolled for a Masters in Social work program at UCU and graduated in 2011.
In 2013, he went back to Makerere to pursue a PhD in disaster management which he is still pursuing.
He has been a leader since his childhood.
He became a prefect in primary, head prefect in O’level, a prefect in A-level and while at Makerere University, he became a general secretary of the Makerere University Bakiiga Students Association.
Still at Makerere, he became a research assistant of the then Makerere University National Resistance Movement Organisation where he became exposed to NRM.
In 2006, he began representing the youth on the LC1 council.
He also represented Muyebe parish at the subcounty council the same year.
However, his bid to represent the Sub county on the district council for Buhara subcounty failed as he lost to Fr. Byarugaba.
In 2011, he showed his first interest to represent NRM on the Ndorwa East position but party officials asked him to leave for the current MP, Wilfred Nuwagaba.
He was asked to try his luck in 2016.
Why Niwagaba must go
Kwesiga says the failure by the current MP to represent the party in parliament made him develop more interest to contest.
He accuses MP Niwagaba of betraying the NRM by becoming a rebel MP something he says has delayed the development of the area since the government no longer considers the area important.
He says if elected he will bridge the local people with the government for efficient service delivery.
Kwesiga has also been credited for supporting the education of some needy students at the moment since he is sponsoring 10 students in various institutions at the moment.
Infrastructure development being one of the challenges of the constituency, Kwesiga says he will greatly work towards promoting the development of good roads, industries, electricity provision among other areas.
As an environmentalist, he says he shall ensure that people conserve the environment through using modern methods of farming and tree planting.
Besides politics, Kwesiga is a farmer who has started a demonstration site that promotes farming using organic fertilisers and “farming the God’s way” an approach where he plants crops in a bushy area and lets grow without interference.
Kwesiga is a family man and he is married to Edinah Mulinde and the couple is blessed with 3 kids.
