KABALE, UGANDA: Immaculate Tracy Ninsiima, an independent MP contestant for Ndorwa West has said she will support Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba the Commander Special Forces Command (SFC), if he declares to stand for presidency.

The MP candidate made the remarks yesterday while addressing press at Cephas Inn in Kabale.
During the press conference, she donned a black shirt with a portrait of Gen. Muhoozi.
She said she was in fact inspired by the first son in her political career.
Just recently, social media was awash with reports that Tracy Ninsiima was an opposition candidate planted by foreigners to unseat Minister David Bahati from Ndorwa West.
However, Tracy said she was leaning towards the NRM party and a strong supporter of President Museveni. She also dismissed claims that she had foreign support.
Tracy, a Kampala based businesswoman revealed that she did not participate in the NRM Primary Election because she did not trust the process.

Minister David Bahati has represented Ndorwa West since 2006.
Others contestants in the race include Geoffrey Nzaana of FDC, Simon Agaba, Simpson Mpirirwe, Gilbert Matsiko who are all independents.
