He also claimed that Wakayima Musoke doesn’t have the minimum education qualifications as stated in the Parliamentary Election Act.

While delivering his ruling, http://chesapeakecatsanddogs.org/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_basic_singlepic/package.module.nextgen_basic_singlepic.php the judge pointed out that Wakiso District Retuning Officer Sarah Bukirwa erred when she based on the Declaration Forms (DR) from Wakayima’s agents without the original copies from Electoral commission to consider their results, which could have affected the margin between the two candidates.

On the issue of being an eligible voter, Justice Okwang ruled that the names in the voters register which Wakayima used to vote were Wakayima Musoke Nsereko yet his Academic Transcripts and other
documents have Musoke Hanington Nsereko.

“Wakayima Musoke Nsereko was registered in error since his name doesn’t appear anywhere in the voters register,” he ruled.

Regarding the academic transcripts however, the judge pointed out that Kasule failed to satisfy court that the transcript which Wakayima used were not his because he failed to bring in court another Hanington Musoke Nsereko the owner of the said documents.

Court further faulted the Electoral Commission through the District Returning officer Sarah Bukirwa for failing to give reasons on why they failed to declare results from 24 polling stations.

Immediately after court passed its judgment Kasule Sebunya congratulated his supporters and vowed to serve his constituents without segregation.

Wakayima on the other hand said he disagreed with the court ruling, and revealed that he would refer this matter back to his voters to take the next step.

“We cannot accept this judgment because it was full of unbelievable errors and omissions. For now I can’t go beyond this,” he said.

Meanwhile, the winner Sebunya found hard time to access the main road as angry Wakayima supporters camped outside court vowing not to allow him to their constituency since they didn’t elect him. This led to heavy deployment of Antiriot police to cool down the situation
