Only thing Hilderman has done for voters is sing at functions - Kyambadde

Former Member of Parliament (MP) Amelia Anne Kyambadde has said her successor Hilary Kiyaga, better known as Dr. Hilderman Mazongoto, has reversed the things she had done for Mawokota North Constituency.

Kyambadde, who lost to Dr. Hilderman in the 2021 elections, said that the musician-turned-politician has only scored points for singing for people at functions.

She also said he "just tries" and is not the best at singing, which was a bit of a surprise considering she supported him financially when he released a song after her name, Amelia.

"I haven't seen anything," she said while laughing when she was asked to mention some of his achievements. "Apart from singing at functions."

Asked if he is a good performer, she said: "he tries."

Kyambadde, who is now a presidential advisor, said that she has nothing against her successor because she believes she inspired him to contest.

"He is my MP... People chose him... I was happy because it shows I inspired him to serve people. That shows me he was a good learner," she said.

Press on whether she likes Dr. Hilderman, she said: "I'm not lying because they say everything has its time. I had been in the position for 10 years. Of course, it shocks you a bit, but it doesn't mean you hate the person. I can't hate him because he sang a good song for me."

She continued: "After voting, I was the first to acknowledge that Hilderman had defeated me because they had told me to go to court and I refused."

On what made Amelia, the song, popular, she said: "His problem was thinking that people loved the song because of him, but people loved it because of me... The song changed his life a lot because I sponsored him. I sponsored his shows... and supported him. But I was happy that it worked for him and changed his life."

Meanwhile, Kyambadde, who couldn't confirm if she will contest in the 2026 elections, said that Dr. Hilderman had reversed most of the services she brought for the constituency, especially in the health sector.
