Jinja District returning officer, tadalafil Tonny Ambrose Mwaita has nominated four candidates in the race for Kagoma County Member of Parliament.
The four candidates who were nominated on Tuesday at Kagoma County Headquarters include; NRM’s Moses walyomu Muwanika, FDC’s Timothy Lusala Batuwa, Muhammad Bizimack Bidondole and Alex Brandon Kintu, both independents.
The Kagoma MP seat fell vacant in March after Court presided over by three Justices; Fredrick Engonda -Ntende, Paul Mugamba and Alfonse Owiny-Dollo annulled the election of Moses Walyomu over voter bribery.
The justices overturned a decision of Jinja High Court that had rejected evidence of voter bribery against Walyomu which had been brought against him by his opponent Alex Brandon Kintu.
They ruled that Kintu brought satisfactory evidence that on January 3rd, 2016, Walyomu bribed a community of voters with 500, 000 shillings through the leaders of Mawoito mosque.
Court also found out that there was intimidation of witnesses with arrest and prosecution by MP Walyomu in Jinja court if they had proceeded to testify against him.
The elections are scheduled to be held on Thursday May 11th.
