NRM National Treasurer Hon Rose Namayanja Nsereko has described the party’s success in Toroma as a ‘sweet victory’.

This was after  Joseph Koluo Andrew earned NRM a fourth consecutive win in a stretch of about three months.

Koluo polled 8262 votes to emerge winner of the 8-man race.

Independent candidate Robert Imalingat and cousin of the deceased MP got 4072 votes and finished second while former LCV Chairman Solomon Ossiya Alemu (independent) had 3440 to take the third slot.

Others were FDC’s Martin Osaka Omeedo (3081), Ekongot John Robert (1957), Itakorit Constantine (296), UPC’s Omiat Andrew (99) and Edyangu Patrick (72).
There were only 46 spoilt papers out of the 21,868 ballot papers counted.

NRM HAILS VOTERS

Deputy National Treasurer Dr. Kenneth Omona who headed the tactical operations in the field said the result would energize the party to continue winning more by-elections.

He also hailed the people of Toroma Constituency for enduring the heavy rains to attend the President’s rallies.

Omona further noted that the Toroma voters registered the least number of spoilt votes in the recent polls.

THE MAFABI EFFORTS

FDC’s Secretary General Hon Nandala Mafabi spent nearly a week here but his efforts could secure them a 4th position with 3081 votes.

NRM has so far won four by-elections in Moroto, Kamuli Municipality, Kagoma and now Toroma.

It only lost Aruu North constituency in Pader district to an independent Lucy Aciro.

Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba says her team will keep focused  ahead of other upcoming tasks.
