Non Governmental Organisations under their umbrella body Alliance For Finance Monitoring -ACFIM accuse the NRM of bribing voters to vote for the NRM candidate Moses Walyomu.
The results as announced by the Electoral Commission last night indicate that the FDC candidate Timothy Batuwa gannered 8,149, Alex Brandon Kintu who polled 18,39 while NRM’s Walyomu polled 24,257.
Kagoma MP seat fell vacant in March after Court presided over by three Justices; Fredrick Engonda -Ntende, Paul Mugamba and Alfonse Owiny-Dollo annulled the election of Moses Walyomu over voter bribery.
The justices overturned a decision of Jinja High Court that had rejected evidence of voter bribery against Walyomu which had been brought against him by his opponent Alex Brandon Kintu.
Electoral Commission hence nominated four candidates includong NRM’s Moses Walyomu Muwanika, FDC’s Timothy Lusala Batuwa, Muhammad Bizimack Bidondole and Alex Brandon Kintu, both independents.
However, while addressing the media today, Mutenga Joshua the Cordinator for ACFIM said that the just concluded elections were also characterised with voter bribery and were not free and fair.
Mutenga notes that they have proof that on Sunday 7th May, the NRM party Secretary General Kasule Lumumba donated over seven million shillings to Buwenge Catholic Church and St. Luke Church of Uganda in Buwenge Subcounty with a campaign message, “Take the Bus.”
He says that tney also have proof that the NRM candidate spent 30,000 shilling on every motor cycle to ferry voters.
However, when contacted by the Spear News team Rogers Mulindwa the NRM spokesperson did not pick his phone to comment about the allegations.
