Frustration as Kyamadidi Election Petition Stalls

Mbarara High Court has Wednesday postponed for the second time the ruling in the election petition case filed by former Rwampara MP Vincent Kyamadidi against Charles Ngabirano who won the seat in the last February elections.

The Presiding Judge Winfred Nabisinde like last week did not show up for today’s session.

In the election petition, buy Kyamadidi alleges a number of election irregularities, and wants Ngabirano’s victory nullified.

Today, supporters of the two contenders camped at the court early in morning, but to their disappointment, they were informed that the judge was unable to make it to court.

The ruling was pushed once again to Friday this week.

The supporters were visibly irritated by the delayed conclusion of the case which they say they have waited upon for months.

“For us we are interested in the ruling; we are not after who wins,” Peter Byamukama FDC publicity secretary in the region said.

The case which was supposed to be concluded on 4th August was adjourned to today saying the judge was sick.


Police heavily deployed at the court and many supporters was not allowed incside the premises.

While speaking to Vicent Kyamadidi on phone he told Chimpreports that they were informed yesterday that the ruling had been adjourned to Friday without any reason given to the adjournment.

He said that he was hurting with Rwampara people “whose election was robbed” and appealed to them to wait for the judge to decide on the matter.

“Friday is also not far, we shall wait and the case will be ruled” Kyamadidi said.
