Former Miss Uganda contestant dully nominated to contest against 10 men in 2021

Former journalist and miss Uganda contestant Nancy Linda Kalembe has finally been nominated to run as an independent presidential candidate in the 2021 general elections.

Nancy now becomes the only female candidate in the race of 11 candidates.

On Monday, the Electoral Commission dismissed Kalemba over failure to present proof of payment of Shs20M nomination fees.

Kalembe, who presented her nomination papers to the Electoral Commission was asked to go and clear and return for nomination on Tuesday, the last day of the exercise.

“You have failed to comply with section 10(6) which requires you to pay a nonrefundable fee of 20million Shillings before appearing for nomination. As a result, we are not able to nominate you because you have not fully complied with the requirement for nomination as a presidential candidate. So please could your agents come for your papers,” Justice Simon Byabakama Mugenyi who presided over the nomination said.
