1134 Views Kibaale, Uganda
The Kibaale District Treasurer for the National Resistance Movement, Patrick Zikashagiza, has petitioned the party officials to nullify the Buyaga County elections. Yesterday NRM members around the country voted in party candidates for directly elected parliamentary and local government officials. Zikashagiza says the elections in Kibaale were fraudulent, characterized by vote buying, and rigging in Rugashari Mpeefu, Bwikara and Muhooro sub-counties. He requests that the results of yesterday's elections should be rejected and the polls held again. Latest results show the elections very close between the incumbent Buyaga MP, Ignatius Besisira, and former Pallisa Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, Barnabas Tinaksimire. No winner has been announced.
