Anna Adeke to Battle Osegge for Soroti Woman MP Seat in Heated 2021 Race

BY: Eyalama In Politics On

Soroti District will be another fire-breathing battlefield as National Female Youth MP Anna Adeke Ebaju is set to challenge reigning Soroti District Woman MP Angelline Asio Osegge in 2021 polls.

Sources have intimated to this website that the 28year old former Makerere University guild president is determined to give the 50year old Osegge a run for her money in a ‘David-Goliath’ duel that could further split supporters of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in Soroti district.

Adeke reportedly opened the lid for her Soroti Woman seat bid on Sunday during the thanksgiving mass for the newly consecrated Soroti Catholic diocese Bishop Joseph Eciru Oliach. Earlier last week during the Eid celebrations at Soroti Sports Ground, Adeke also hinted on the same ambitions and sought blessings from the religious leaders.

Despite being in the FDC party since her heydays at Makerere University, Adeke was an Independent but FDC leaning candidate in the 2016 Youth MP race and has since then maintained her loyalty to the main opposition party. Adeke was mentored by former FDC president Gen Mugisha Muntu, who is also a great colleague to Angelline Osegge. In 2017, Muntu and Osegge were inseparable as the retired general combed regions in search for votes in the FDC President race where he surprisingly lost to Patrick Amuriat Oboi.

Whereas Adeke will be desperate to find a new constituency in 2021, Osegge will be much more determined to consolidate her territory that she has uninterruptedly enjoyed since 2011. It remains unclear if Adeke will return as an Independent candidate or prefer to battle Osegge in the FDC primaries; that is if both candidates do not join Muntu in his new party- Alliance for National Transformation.

Both Osegge and Adeke have played a pivotal role in shaping the legislative agenda with the former having steered the Public Accounts Committee as its chairperson while the latter took credit for tabling the motion seeking a resolution of parliament to inquire into allegations of sexual abuse in schools.

When the two MPs were contacted, Adeke said that the time for declarations is “Not now” while Osegge laughed aloud and welcomed Adeke to the race saying, “This is a free world. Anybody is free to come on board. It is the people to decide.”

Over the past elections, former Youth MPs have got a soft landing in finding new constituencies to occupy. Notable among them are former Eastern Youth MP Peter Ogwang, now Usuk County MP, former National female youth MP Monicah Amoding, now Kumi Woman MP, former Northern Youth MP Evelyn Anite, now Koboko Municipality MP and others.
