MOMENT OF TRUTH: NRM EC Chairman to decide on Kabasharira’s victory today

NTUNGAMO- Dr Tanga Odoi the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Electoral Commission Chairman will today Tuesday 15th September announce a final decision in Kabasharira’s victory over Minister Rukutana.

Dr. Tanga promised to announce the Rushenyi County NRM flag bearer after the NRM returning officer declared Kabasharira winner having trounced Minister Mwesigwa Rukutana by 40 votes but the loser side petitioned the commission.

Kabasharira garnered 24,006 as Minister Rukutana trailed with 23,966 votes.

The team of jailed State Minister of Labour, Rukutana petitioned the NRM EC headquarters with overwhelming evidence to overturn the results announced in Ntungamo last week.

The Ntungamo district NRM election officer Mirembe Maria declared Kabasharira the winner. The declaration form was however not signed by Rukutana’s agent, who out rightly disagreed with the results.

Accordingly, Rubaare Sub County, which is considered Rukutana’s stronghold didn’t vote after the register disappeared.

Voting was deferred to Saturday, the same day when chaos broke out in the area resulting into multiple shootings and injuring of Rukutana’s rival’s loyalists.

As a result, Minister Rukutana has since been in jail battling charges relating to attempted murder, theft of a gun, malicious damage and assault.
