Minister for Disaster Preparedness Eng Hilary Onek has mocked parliamentary incumbents who lost in last week’s elections, look http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/friendsearch.php saying that these were overly taken up by the good life in Kampala and forgot about their voters back home.

Eng Onek, who won back his Lamwo county seat with a massive 16, http://completehealthacupuncture.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpsockets.php 000 vote margin, said the unsuccessful incumbents had been “married” to the Kampala high life.

This will be Minister Onek’s fourth term in parliament and the last one according to his promise during his nomination last year.

For those who were unable to retain their parliamentary seats, Onek had a precise explanation; “Some MPs lost because they were married to the high life instead of serving the people,” he tweeted on Tuesday evening. “Unfortunately on February 18th, the high life broke her vows.”

Some of the notables who lost their parliamentary seats in the election include Ministers Jessica Alupo, Kahinda Otafiire, Oundo Nekesa, Henry Banyenzaki, Chrispus Kiyonga, Attorney General Fred Ruhundi, Leader of Opposition Wafula Ogutu, FDC’s Alice Alaso, Chasiano Wadri and several others.
The Forum for Democratic Change party has refused to receive the copy of the declaration forms delivered by officials from the Independent Electoral Commission.

The Commission publicist Jotham Taremwa hand delivered the parcel containing the forms at the FDC offices in Najjanankumbi, troche http://companyimpact.com/joslondon/wp-includes/pluggable-deprecated.php which they found closed following yesterday’s raid by police officers.

At the headquarters gate, Mr Taremwa found one of the FDC officials Harold Kaija, who declined to receive the declaration forms saying that he was not in position to handle such a task.

The FDC Presidential candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye who by publication time was still in police custody, at the start of the week intended to collect the forms from the EC head offices along Jinja road.

He says he needs the forms as part of the evidence to build up a case challenging the presidential election results announced last Saturday.

Mr Kaija lambasted the EC spokesperson who delivered the parcel, noting that the party was dealing with the EC chairman Eng Badru Kiggundu and not the publicist.

Taremwa on failing to argue with the opposition party officials proceeded to Dr Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati to deliver the forms to him.

“We have been spending sleepless nights trying to put together these results, and now that they are here they don’t want them,” he complained before heading to Kasangati.
