National Unity Platform (NUP) earlier this year won 41 out of the 44 seats for the directly elected and woman councillors to Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA. The other three seats were taken by members of the Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party which also sponsored the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago.
Kampala Deputy Mayor Doreen Nyanjura retained her seat for the Makerere University woman councillor while two other FDC members, Micdad Muganga who contested for the Makerere University lord councillor position and Namazzi Olive who contested for Nakawa A won the seats.
No candidate from either the National Resistance Movement-NRM or the Democratic Party DP won a seat in the council, the first time the two parties hold no single representative at city hall. Many of them finished in the second position as the tide swang in favour of the National Unity Platform.
NUP holds 11 positions in Makindye, 9 in Nakawa, 10 in Lubaga, 3 in Kampala central and 8 in Kawempe Division.
