Molly Asiimwe of Rwampara was named the best Woman MP in Ankole after 150 days in Parliament.

According to a report published this week by the Ankole Political Activists Club (APAC), a research organization in western Uganda, this is the case.

Molly Asiimwe Musiime, a Rwampara Woman Member of Parliament, has been named the top performing legislator among district women members from the Ankole subregion.

According to a report published this week by the Ankole Political Activists Club (APAC), a research organization in western Uganda, this is the case.

Buhweju, Bushenyi, Ibanda, Isingiro, Kazo, Kiruhura, Mbarara, Mitooma, Ntungamo, Rwampara, Rubirizi, and Sheema are among the 12 districts that make up the Ankole subregion.

According to the results, Asiimwe from Rwampara and Joselyn Bata Kamateneti from Ntungamo topped the list with 78 percent and 77.7 percent, respectively, while Kesande Bataringaya from Rubirizi district came in third with 70 percent. Annet Mugisha of Bushenyi received 60%, Ritah Bwahika of Sheema received 68 percent, and Sheema’s rosemary Nyakikongoro received 68 percent.

Juliet Bashisha of Mitooma has 40 percent, Oliver Katwesigye Koyekyenga of Buhweju has 17.2 percent, Jovanice Rwenduru of Kiruhura has 26 percent, and Jane Bainomugisha of Ibanda has 13 percent, according to the report.

Molly Asiimwe and Kamateneti’s performance was attributed to interventions such as supporting health services through community insurance schemes, fighting land grabbing in the district, extending clean water to water-stressed areas, and supporting skills and talent development, among others, according to the assessment.

The assessment is based on the MPs’ media engagement, community presence and response to people’s outcries, ensuring that services are available in their areas, and participation in parliamentary plenaries, among other things, all of which are in line with the four major functions of a legislator, according to the researchers.

Regular assessments, according to Aron Ainomugisha, media and community affairs officer for the Ankole Political Activists Club, are aimed at holding leaders accountable and informing their electorates about their accomplishments and failures on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis.

“We can’t and won’t allow leaders to sit back and relax while Ugandans go without services.” “We’ll check them objectively,” Ainomugisha said.
