Mrs. Nakyobe also observed that a Secretary in State House was unique when compared to counterparts in other departments because of the institution being a political office.

She urged them to be dedicated while doing their work and congratulated them for completing their course successfully.

Mrs. Nakyobe Mbonye presented certificates to participants who passed their exams.

Busia LC V by-elections were seen as another opportunity for the opposition political parties to test their move of fielding a single candidate against the ruling NRM party but the coalition seemed not to yield positive results after the NRM candidate emerged victor.

In the yesterday’s hotly contested elections, online http://cgdt.org.br/components/com_k2/views/itemlist/view.feed.php the ruling party’s flag-bearer Stephen Wanyama Oundo scored 31, search http://coachypnose.fr/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-links-list-table.php 443 votes; which was 59 percent of the total vote count against Deo Hasubi Njoki of the opposition coalition who managed with only 21, http://confusedcoconut.com/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php 884 votes, translating to 41 percent.

Opposition Democratic Party (DP) president Norbert Mao congratulated Mr. Wanyama despite expressing discontent with the entire process.

“Busia election results are out. Though we have serious reservations about the integrity of the process and the outcome, we congratulate Mr. Wanyama Oundo Steven,” Mao noted.

Mao added, “We started from far behind as challengers to the status quo and battled the full force of the state machinery, I therefore salute our candidate Hasubi Deogratius Njoki for his commitment and say thank you Busia.”

Mao stated that despite losing to the NRM in the by-election, opposition had continued to earn support and increase its popularity among the people in Busia.

“From Busitema and Buteba in the North to Busime and Majanji on the shores of Lake Victoria in the South; from Buyanga in the West to Busia Municipality in the East, the people have made a statement that they are tired of the status quo. Busia will never be the same after this. Museveni will never take Busia for granted again.”

On the same note the Leader of Opposition in Parliament and a member of FDC, Philip Wafula Oguttu has expressed shock over the results which favored the NRM candidate.

“I have attended 11 by-elections and we (opposition) won 8 of them but this is the first one whose results have shocked me,” Wafula exclaimed.

“I can only say that the peaceful regime change many of us crave for could be a pipe dream. As it is, it is only those who have access to and control taxpayer’s money that can easily rent political support and rig elections.”
