After the swearing in ceremony, Arinda rushed to Mbarara for the court session.

“I should be out having lunch and enjoying my triumph; it’s a shame,” he later on told press at the court house. “This is the first time in my 48 years to appear before a court.”

Odo won the parliamentary seat in Ishaka-Bushenyi in 2011 when court nullified the victory of his contender Nasser Bassajabalaba on the basis of bribery, intimidation and electoral malpractices. Although Sebaggala was already sworn in as MP, the Electoral Commission organized another election which Odo won.

Justice Damalie Lwanga set Monday May 23 for further hearing of the petition.
