Unofficial results for Thursday by-election for Kayunga LC5 seat shows that Andrew Muwonge (NRM) is the new Chairperson elect.
This, having garnered 31,830 votes against NUP’s Harriet Nakawede who garnered 31,380 votes.
In January this year, NUP’s Ffeffekka Sserubogo (RIP) won the seat. However, he passed on in June.
Against the above background, a by-election had to be scheduled.
The revelation of NRM win comes amidst accusation of massive vote rigging, intimidation and arrests of supporters of the National Unity Platform candidate.
By last evening, 81 people were confirmed held at Naggalama Police Division.
