Some of the shots taken of the tally sheets show that at some polling stations, Minister Oundo’s votes were edited.

At Buteba sub county for instance, a one [1] was added onto her tally of 70 from Amunuoit village, to make it 170.

Minister Oundo polled 28,750 votes while Nina Nekesa trailed her with a close 25,443.Others in the race were Rose Munyira and Esther Makanga.

Nina Nekesa says she won in 13 sub counties including the municipality which had the biggest population of voters.

“They gave me a block vote when it came to the municipality. Even when I go there now they ask me what happened,” she said.

“The people in Busia love me and they knew I was a favorable candidate. They gave me their votes despite my age and financial status.”

She cited a number of irregularities that marred the entire voting exercise, which went as late as 11pm in the night in some areas.

In some areas, the number of ballot papers that went to the polling stations did not match the number of votes that came back to the tallying centers.

For instance at Buteba she says, where 500 ballot papers were taken it was 900 that returned.

Nonetheless she says, at around 11, she was still leading with a margin of 3000. By 5: 00am, in the morning however, the results had changed and the incumbent was declared winner.

She is now seeking the results to be overturned by the party electoral commission, or she would have to exit the party and run as independent in the coming general elections.

The Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate, this web http://damadetrefla.com/wp-includes/class-wp-embed.php Dr Kizza Besigye is set to kickoff his presidential campaigns in his home region of Kigezi.

Roland Kaginda Mugume, erectile http://chrisbevingtonorganisation.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sal/class.json-api-links.php FDC Western Uganda Vice president revealed this on Saturday while speaking to ChimpReports in Kabale.

He said Besigye will start with a rally in his home town of Rukungiri at the municipal stadium on Monday.

On Tuesday, the FDC ironman who has vowed to give Museveni a run for his money in this election will hold a rally in Ntungamo and another in Kisoro on Wednesday.

On Thursday, Besigye will head to Kanungu and Lwengo on Friday.

Besigye’s decision to start from the home turf is tactical considering his entourage was blocked from accessing the area for a public rally in September.

His convoy was stopped by police thus sparking ugly confrontations along Masaka-Kampala Road.

Besigye is also determined to win in his home area, a stronghold of the NRMS.

Top NRM shots including Maj Gen Jim Muhwezi, Henry Tumukunde among others hail from his area.

Besigye this week announced the beginning of what he described as a “defiance campaign” against the government of President Museveni with the view of “liberating our power back to the people.”

He emphasised: “It is not an ordinary campaign of a candidate asking for power from the people,” Besigye emphasised in an authoritative tone, adding, “people have no power, what can they give?”

He then put his point, succinctly: “It is a campaign of us together with the people seeking our power back.”

Meanwhile, Kaginda said the top party leadership is preparing for the primaries of the two hotly contested seats of Mayor and Municipality MP.

The incumbent mayor, who is also the Kabale FDC Vice Chairperson, Dr Pius Ruhemurana, is facing stiff resistance from the District Party Secretary General and Central Division LC3 Chairperson, Sentaro Byamugisha.

Godfrey Nzaana, the first Reform Agenda chairperson, is battling James Magabo for the municipality seat.

Meanwhile former prime minister john Patrick Amama Mbabazi of the go-forward will hold his  first rally in Masaka on Monday, move to Mukono on Tuesday, Mityana on Wednesday and Luwero on Thursday.

Maureen Walube, the only female candidate in the race and Joseph Mabirizi have announced they will run a joint presidential campaign.

This means the two will appear at the same venue throughout the 2016 campaign season.
