The National Unity Platform (NUP) through their General secretary David Lewis Rubongoya has tasked court to set a date for the hearing of the kayunga LC5 by-election

According to Rubongoya it is over two months since they filed their application, in which they termed as broad daylight snuggery where they believe that their candidate Harriet Nakwedde won Andrew Muwonge, the NRM flag bearer.

Rubongoya made these remarks on Tuesday 16th-03-2022 addreessing Kayunga party members at the NUP party head offices in kamwokya kampala.

The Electoral Commission declared NRM’s Muwonge as the winner for the kayunga LC5 by-election through which NUP challenged the results claiming that their candidate Nakwedde who garnered 37,117 won.

Rubongoya asked court to set a date for hearing their case to determine the rightful winner of Kayunga by-election.

Rubongoya also said that as National Unity Platform, they will still stand their ground in challenging parliament’s decision to remove Zaake from the commission saying that the Deputy Speaker and her colleagues are only doing that to intimidate NUP members.

It should be noted that the Mityana Municipality legislator Francis Zaake was impeached from the Parliamentary Commissioner seat on grounds of disparaging the deputy speaker Anita Among.
