The Jinja East Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) candidate Paul Mwiru has today been nominated by to compete in the by-election that is slated for March 15, 2017.
“I take this opportunity to declare Paul Mwiru as a duly nominated candidate in Jinja East by-election,” the district returning officer Rogers Sserunjogi said.
The Jinja East parliamentary seat fell vacant after a panel of three appellant court judges threw out Nathan Igeme Nabeta, who was wrongly declared Member of Parliament by then Jinja district returning officer Anthony Mwaita in 2016. Consequently, the judges ordered for a fresh elections.
Igeme Nabeta and another contestant Faisal Mayemba have also been nominated.
