Mawokota North MP-elect and musician Dr. Hilderman rose to fame after releasing his singles, ‘mazongoto’ and ‘kampe’. He later released a campaign song for Minister Amelia that became an anthem both in Mawokota and other parts of Uganda.
Dr. Hilderman defeated Kyambadde in the just concluded elections in what he described as a vote of no confidence for having participated in the removal of the presidential age limit from the Constitution.
Hilderman who said first considered the idea in 2010 when he sang Amelia has been accused of using Amelia’s money to overthrow her. “I started following politics, but the idea of standing for office came during the period of the constitutional amendment to remove the president’s age limit. As people of the Mawokota, we closely followed these issues. Our stand was not to tamper with the Constitution. So when Honourable Amelia Kyambadde went against what people wanted her to say, I felt offended. I decided to stand against her not because I had money from her like people claim but because I was the voice of the people” he said.
“It is good that I had the chance to see how political campaigns are conducted and the entire concept of putting together a political campaign, Standing against her without money was easy for me.” Dr. Hilderman added.
It is at this point that Dr. Hilderman denied taking money from Amelia to mobilize for her and then contest against her. He emphasized that he used his past experience to mobilize the funds.
He was born and raised in Mbute village, Kamengo Sub-country, Mawokota country in Mpigi District to late Maurice Nsubuga Namusaanga and Margaret Nakanwagi Nsubuga, who still lives in Mbute, Kampiringisa.
He is the fifth born from an extended family and is married with children to Cissy Winans Namuddy Ssettumba Kiyaga. He is the Mawokota North MP-elect.
