According to Kamuli District returning officer Mr. Kenneth Kayabwe, Baroda Kayanga chose a chair as her campaign and election symbol.

Kayanga who was her mother’s political assistant, promised to follow Watongola’s legacy and triumph in next year’s general elections.

“I was working alongside mother and would not sit back as her legacy is watered down by self-seekers who lack a proper development agenda for this new municipality,” she promised.
