Tanga Odoi fails to resolve Rubanda East petition, postpones declaration of results to Monday

RUBANDA- The Chairman of the National Resistance Movenment NRM Electoral Commission Dr Tanga Odoi has postponed the declaration of the winner of Rubanda East party primary elections winner following failure by the respondent to defend himself.

Speaking to the media in Rubanda this afternoon, Dr Tanga Odoi said that the contested results for 16 villages has remained an issue after the incumbent Hon Henry Musasizi failed to produce declaration forms that forms the basis of his win.

Tanga Odoi told journalists that whereas the 11 village results have been verified, 5 others are not yet verified because the respondent has failed to produce his declaration forms.

He has therefore given Hon Musasizi up to Monday October 5th 2020 to produce the declaration forms so that they can be verified and results declared.

Rubanda East is a contested by Hon Henry Musasizi and Rubanda LC 5 Chairman Kenneth Joggo Biryabarema who petitioned the NRM Electoral Commission over massive rigging.
