Mawokota has never been a DP stronghold as Some DP Claim

Standard
Dear Ugandans at heart,
Some DP members have been heard saying thatI read you as stating  Mawokota has always been substantially DP and pro Kabaka and Ganda tradition.” One question though: When the country had a real opportunity to gauge the popularity of DP by having its long-serving PG contesting for presidency in 1996, how did he, and by very direct implication, DP, fare in Mawokota?
This is how things went in 1996:
Mawokota North: Museveni….21,337; Semogerere….6,344
Mawokota South: Museveni…. 18,897; Semogerere….3,786
In 2001 when DP threw their lot in for Besigye, this is what happened:
Mawokota North: Museveni….21,488; Besigye….8,307
Mawokota South: Museveni…. 19,705; Besigye….6,558
In 2006 when DP decided to come back with Sebaana, here we were:
Mawokota North: Museveni….16,673; Sebaana….1,765
Mawokota South: Museveni….16,231; Sebaana….1,500
So, how do they reconcile those figures with their claim about Mawokota being a DP stronghold?  Did they actually mean “stranglehold”?
I also suggest that they exercise some inhibition when it comes to their view that Mawokota is pro-Mmengo or Pro-Kabaka etc….and then mention Mugwanya at the same time.  Some of us were around in 1955/56 and so what happened when the Kabaka was manoevring to keep Catholics out of Mmengo.
…and just some little point: While the Owesazza of Butambala has always been called Katambala; the one of Busujju, Kasujju, etc, the one of Mawokota is called Kaima and not Muwokota…why?……seen a subcounty there called Kiringente?…..for some of you who love lampooning balaalo….
Ah!…and the Majwala who inspired this whole thread of Amelia’s anti-Mutebism needs to reconcile his views with this picture below:
