Drama ensued when Ngabikyire presented results before Odoi showing that, Prossy Mbabazi Begumisa Akampurira had garnered 4779 votes in Bufundi Sub County against Hildah Kabarungi Karuhize’s 351 votes.

This forced polling agents of Kabarungi, led by Wilfred Arinda to demand for a recount claiming that the results were unrealistic. When Odoi and his team recounted, Kabarungi got 3797 votes while Akampurira got 3888 votes.

Odoi immediately ordered police to arrest Ngabikyire and kick off the investigations.

Augustine Nakitari, the Rubanda district   acting District Police Commander confirmed the arrest of Nicholas Ngabikire and revealed that they have commenced the investigations

Nomination for candidates by the Independent electoral commission is expected on 29th July 2016, and voting will be a month later August 29th.
