As has been the case in the NRM primaries, the Lwengo election also had incidents of violence. One of the candidates, Mutabaazi, was arrested after some of the residents accused him of assaulting and injuring them having realized that they didn’t support his candidature.
Results from some districts have been released and others are yet to be released by the area returning officers.
Mutabaazi has been the chairman of Lwengo since 2011 and he became popular when he appeared on various media outlets caning lazy residents and drunkards who were in bars during working hours.
