The Mbale District Chairperson Bernard Mujasi was among the Bugisu Sub region NRM bigwigs who suffered humiliation after registering a loss in the recently concluded NRM primaries.
The race was won by Robert Wandwasi, who scooped 13,016 votes, followed by Geofrey Worukuri who got 9,489 votes and Mujasi came last with 17 votes.
“I join you all my people of Bungokho South to congratulate you for this great achievement of entrusting me as your NRM flag bearer MP come 2021. You did a great job to see us through and I promise that we shall raise the flag higher in 2021,” Wandwasi said upon being declared the winner by the Bungokho South NRM Registrar.
