After a humbling loss in the NRM party primaries in Koboko Municipality, the state minister for Investment and Privatisation, is planning to stay home as a full-time house.
She told The Witness on Friday evening that she wants to dedicate her time to serving her husband, Allan Kajik.
Anite lost the primary vote to Dr. Charles Ayume, a son to former Attorney General and Speaker of Parliament, the late Francis Ayume.
She garnered 5,861 votes against Ayume’s 7,414.
Moments before the polls opened, Anite was upbeat, and a possibility of losing seemed to be not among her expectations – at least going by the activity on her Twitter handle, @HonAniteEvelyn.
After the final tally, Anite was humbled but quickly conceded defeat and ruled out the possibility of her seeking re-election as an independent.
“I will be full time wife of Kajik,” she said in a text message.
Elsewhere, Defense minister Adolf Mwesige Kasaija lost his bid to reclaim the NRM flag for the Bunyangabu parliamentary seat.
He was defeated by Davis Kamukama who polled 22,445 against Mwesige’s 18,067 votes. Vincent Womujuni came third with 1,993 votes while Robert Nyakahuma trailed the group with 1,881 votes.
In Chua East, Kitgum district, the state minister for Foreign Affairs, Henry Okello Oryem lost to new entrant Godfrey Luwo who garnered 14,906 votes against Oryem’s 9,036 votes.
In Lwemiyaga, Sembabule district, the state minister for Transport, Joy Kafura Kabatsi was in a distant forth position with 2,645 votes.
The incumbent, Theodore Ssekikubo retained the NRM flag with 12,179 votes.
