FOR BY-ELECTION: Walyomu Muwanika Moses, Kagoma, NRM

A team of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leaders have camped in Kagoma County to back up Alex Brandon Kintu ahead of the May 11 by-election.

The Kagoma parliamentary seat fell vacant after the Court of Appeal nullified the election of Moses Walyomu (NRM) as a Member of Parliament.

Mr. Kintu stood on an independent ticket though he lost the but challenged the results in High Court Jinja, which was dismissed by Justice Godfrey Namundi.

He then filed a petition citing bribery, vote rigging, as well as voter intimidation, and on March 27 a panel of three judges, Justice Fredrick Engonda Ntende, Paul Mugambe and Alfonso Owinyi Dollo ruled in favour of the appellant.

Meanwhile, President Yoweri Museveni is expected in Kagoma tomorrow to campaign for Walyomu and will address four rallies in the county.
