Nabukenya Vows To Seize Luweero Again

clinic http://cloudninerealtime.com/wp-admin/includes/file.php geneva; font-size: small;”>Addressing the media at the party headquarters in Kampala on Tuesday, healing http://churchofthekingmcallen.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-users-list-table.php DP president, information pills Nobert Mao said they have been saddened by the decision of the court to push Nabukenya out of parliament on allegations of vote rigging.

“As DP, we have inclined not to wasting time going for an appeal in court but rather go back to the people of Luweero to ensure that we prepare and win with a more resounding victory,” said Mao.

He said Nabukenya’s Lawyers have put up a notice of appeal which just works as a first aid but this does not guarantee an appeal not until a memorandum of appeal is made.

On the same note, Nabukenya said that she wasn’t surprised by the decision of the court because since she entered parliament, she has been appearing before the Kampala Hight Court over the same case.

Nabukenya said she is stronger than never before and believes that what she has done for the people of Luweero for the nine months so far is enough to convince them vote for her in the by-elections.

Nabukenya is travelling today to Luweero to meet with the voters whom she says that she is to explain to them what the court said and therefore ask for the final decision from the people whether to go to court or go for the re-run so as to defend her victory.

She has, however, warned the police to avoid being used by the NRM in stopping her from addressing the people but rather offer her security because the issues she is advocating for are the same issues that benefit the police as well.

High Court judge Vincent Zehurikirize last Thursday threw Luweero Nabukenya out of Parliament over massive election rigging and bribery.

The judge also ordered the Electoral Commission to organize fresh elections.

The case arose from a petition by Nabukenya’s rival, Rebecca Nalwanga, who lost the by-election in November last year.

Nalwanga, an NRM candidate, accused Nabukenya of bribing voters.

She also faulted the Electoral Commission of closing the voting exercise before the mandatory 5pm which literally “disenfranchised” her supporters.

In his ruling today, Zehurikirize said Nalwanga had raised her complaints on a strong ground considering that she lost by a margin of 30 votes.
