Opposition Rejects NRMs Ojok Victory of Omoro County By-Election




The National Unity Platform (NUP) through their spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi has rejected the results of the Omoro by-election siting that what happened should be a cause of worry to every Ugandan.

According to NUP mouthpiece, although what they experienced in Omoro is not new to them as a party, the trend has reached worrying levels.

Ssenyonyi made these remarks while appearing on NBS Frontline, Thursday.

What has happened today in Omoro County is not new but should worry every well-meaning Ugandan out there, Ssenyonyi said.

The election cannot be regarded as fair, when some of our representatives were arrested a night before the election and were not able observe what was happening on Thursday, he said.

Our agents and election supervisors began to be arrested last night and are still behind bars. I can assure you that by close of business tomorrow, they will be set free with no charge, he added.

Ssenyonyi further stated that plan was to get them out of circulation so that the state does what it wants as he castigated the countrys Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja, who he accused of dishing out cash to the electorate.

Whenever you see Robinah Nabbanja involved in an election, know she has gone to distribute money. We saw what she did in Kayunga. When we saw her in Omoro, we knew what she was up to, Ssenyonyi said.

NRMs Andrew Ojok Oulanyah sailed to smooth victory in the Omoro-County by electionsOulanyah, the son of the late Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah polled 14224 votes to put daylight between him and his closest competitor Simon Toolit Aketcha of the NUP who polled 1,633 votes to retain the seat within his family.
