Other candidates included Tito Turiyo of Forum for Democratic Change who scooped 321 votes which is 0.5%, Shafique Dembe of Democratic Party who got 165 votes giving him a 0.3% and the Independent, Pastor Abel Tumusiime who scooped 99 votes giving him 0.1% of the total votes cast.

The results were officially announced at 2:51 am by the Isingiro district returning officer, Mr. Robert Twikirize.

The voting process was in the largest time of the day impeded by the heavy rains that swept through the area but all in all, people turned up and voted as expected.

In the meantime, Jackline Asiimwe Matovu and Jeremiah Kamurari Birungyi had pulled out of the race at the last hour giving Kangwangye an upper hand in the polls.

However, their withdraw has been blamed for the nullification of more than 1,000 ballots in the by-election.

Bukanga county parliamentary seat fell vacant after the death of Gregory Matovu in September.
