see geneva; font-size: small;”>In March, find Court in Mengo ordered the recount of ballots after Singh accused Moses Kasibante of rigging him out.

However, hours before the recount, High Court ordered that the recount be halted. Amusingly Mengo Court, which is subordinate to High Court stubbornly defied the instructions thus conducting a flawed recount.

The recounting process was conducted under heavy presence of military personnel.

In his ruling today, Kibuuka said from today, Kasibante is the duly elected MP for Rubaga, sending his supporters into wild jubilations.

This implies that Singh is no longer a member of Parliament until he wins an appeal in the Court of Appeal.

During the trial, lawyers representing Singh disappeared mysteriously, leaving the city businessman stranded. Singh, in an unusual gesture of indiscipline, told Justice Kibuuka that Kasibante had given him a bribe to rule in his favour.

“Do you think you can arm-twist court?” the judge asked Singh.

Friends say Singh spent Shs600m to ‘win’ the Rubaga polls.
