Description:
Nasser Ntege Sebaggala was an independent presidential candidate in the 2006 Ugandan general election before dropping out and joining the Kampala Mayoral race.

Obstensibly a member of the Democratic Party, Sebaggala won the first direct elections for mayor of Kampala in 1998, beating two government-sponsored candidates. However, he was arrested in the United States two months later in June of that year on on eight counts of fraud and of lying to U.S. customs officials. In February 1999, he received a 15-month sentence, but was paroled in December 1999. He returned to Kampala in February 2000 to a warm welcome and considered a bid in the 2001 presidential elections.

In mid-December 2005, he broke with the Democratic Party after he came third in the party presidential primaries, which was won by Ssebaana Kizito, and registered himself as an independent. A week later, he reversed himself, withdrawing his candidacy and announcing his support for Kizito.
