Court Sets Date for Bunya East Poll Petition Ruling

High Court in Kampala has scheduled 3rd October as the date for ruling in the election petition for Bunya East Constituency in Mayuge District.

The presiding Judge Lydia Mugambe told court filled on Monday morning that she has had a number of cases to handle but will be able to deliver verdict in two weeks time for people of Bunya east to know the next course of action.

The petition stems from the February parliamentary election where the NRM flag bearer James Kubeketerya challenged the election and declaration of his independent NRM inclined incumbent rival James Woira Kyewalabye alias Majegere.

Mr Kubeketerya who represented the same area in the 8th parliament, dosage through his lawyer Samuel Muyiizi dragged Majegere to the high court accusing him of voter bribery, vote rigging and intimidation of voters.

He also sued the electoral commission for conspiring with the first respondent to cause the erroneous violence and faulting the electoral process. The case was allocated to Kampala high court and it has
been dragging since March.

Majegere who is represented by Musa Ssekaana, says their defense squashed every allegation and accusation laid against them and anytime the court rules, they await the second victory.

“Voters and the public should only remain calm as we wait for the verdict because our opponent was kicked out of the seat the way Uganda Cranes kicked out Comoros” he said.
