MITOOMA- The Mitooma district woman Member of Parliament Hon Jovah Kamateeka has maintained that the recent NRM primary elections were marred by irregularities. Hon Kamateeka has represented Mitooma district in Parliament since 2011.
Hon. Kamataake lost to Agasha Juliet Bashisha in the NRM primaries. However she challenged the polls, the NRM Tribunal dismissed the petition which forced her to bounce back as an independent candidate.
Appearing on a radio talk show in Mitooma district on Sunday October 18th, 2020 Hon Kamateeka said she did not accept the results since most of the results were forged.
Among the irregularities she mentioned were; under-age voting, ferrying voters from Sheema to vote in Katenga Sub-county and that results from Mutara Sub County were forged at the Sub-county headquarters.
“We never wanted to cause chaos because I had even told the registrar not to declare a winner after I and my supporters discovered there were irregularities”, Kamateeka explained.
Hon Kamateeka noted that she has tirelessly worked for the people of Mitooma and is sure they will support her especially women.
“I have done my role as a legislator and even tried to help people by supporting them in their groups especially women”, she explained.
“Let people not compare the performance of district woman MP with those of constituencies because we are given many responsibilities than them”, she added.
Kamateeka (Independent candidate) will battle NRM’s Agasha Juliet Bashisha, Kyarampe Rebecca (Independent) and Kamayonza Constance (NUP).
