National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General, stomach http://citybreakguide.ro/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader.php Justine Kasule Lumumba has lambasted Kenyan politician Prof. Anyang Nyongo who recently poked holes in Uganda’s general elections conducted last month.

The Kisumu Senator recently told the Kenyan Parliament that the Ugandan elections were “badly rigged” by the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni.

“The outcome of the presidential election has been very problematic. This is the first time in an African country where an election is held and there is no celebration of victory anywhere, advice http://communique-de-presse-gratuit.com/wp-content/plugins/subscribe2/include/options.php ” he said.

“We sit on a precipice of disaster. Like it happened in the 1970s, we may sooner than later, have to accommodate our Ugandan sisters and brothers in Kenya because of insecurity in their country. It is, therefore, we, as Kenyans, to become seized what is going on and get ready to defend democracy, not just in our nation, but everywhere in the world.”

While responding to the Senator’s remarks at the NRM headquarters in Kampala, The Secretary General said Prof Anyang’s concerns were misplaced.

Lumumba went ahead to advise the opposition Orange Democratic Movement [ODM] party Secretary General focus on his party and Kenyan politics.

“I also read his speech on Social Media. If it is true, it’s sad because it shouldn’t be Kenya to advise us on issues about good elections,” she said.

“I even noticed that the person who moved the motion was a Secretary General of a party that has never won elections; if he is an expert in conducting elections, let him first win elections in Kenya then we can take his advice,” Lumumba said.

Prof. Nyango called upon Kenya to lead the world in condemning what is going on in Uganda and called upon Ugandans resist the “dictatorial regime.”

He noted, “I call upon the AU not to be timid, but to stand with nations who love democracy the world over to denounce what is happening in Uganda. I call upon the East African Community right here at home to do the same.”

Former state minister of ethics and integrity Dr James Nsaba Buturo has returned to parliament after defeating independent archrival and the incumbent Eddie Kwizera Wagahungu, cure http://datedgear.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-product-external.php to whom he lost in the 2011 polls.

Nsaba Buturo was declared by the Kisoro District returning officer Alex Ainebyoona at the Kisoro district headquarters   this morning at 11.30, clinic following yesterday’s repeated poll.

The former minister obtained 16850 votes while Kwizera who boycotted the exercise managed 1444 votes, whereas the FDC candidate Mathius Barihima trailed with 198 votes.

Eddie Kwizera was running on an independent ticket after losing in the NRM primaries last year.

The elections for the constituency were repeated after the Electoral Commission discontinued the exercise on February 18th over logistical glitches.

On the polling day, mistakes were found on the ballot papers where the candidates’ symbols were mismatched, compelling the Commission to postpone the election to yesterday.

Kwizera however, boycotted the exercise saying that the commission has its own interests and intended to fail him.

He told reporters that he had already petitioned the constitutional court over the matter.

The rivalry of the two politicians dates back in 2011 when the two stood together in the NRM primaries where Wagahungu defeated Buturo who was then a minister.

Nsaba went on to stand as an independent but lost again to Wagahungu.

Meanwhile, the constituencies where the February 18th parliamentary election were rescheduled include Dokolo South, Kibale County, Kitagwenda County, Busiki County and Mawogola South.

Voters in Buyende, Kween, Kyegegwa and Yumbe districts will also be voting for their respresentives soon.
