“It is true one should accept defeat but not under such circumstances where your opponent’s victory is simply attained through gross rigging,” Nebbanda said.

She noted that the entire exercise in Butalejja was botched, claiming that nearly all her agents were chased away from polling stations.

“I Am here to present my petition to Dr. Tanga Odoi and to the office of NRM Secretary General calling for cancellation of the results so as to hold fresh elections.”

“There were no declaration forms delivered at polling stations; the forms were delivered late in the night which I believe led to manipulation of results. We made complaints before elections because we foresaw all this coming.”

Nebbanda lost to Milly Mugenyi in a race that also involved Betty Hamba, Betty Nesibwe and Allen Wegulo.

Brandishing another petition was Hon. Baker Sali from Buikwe County West Constituency, who claimed that some of his supporters were denied chance to take part in the election.

So far more than five petitions have been delivered at the party Electoral Commission.
