Court reinstates Mwotta as Makerere guild


High Court has ordered reinstated Makerere University guild president-elect Bazil Mwotta Biddemu.

Bazil Mwotta was declared winner with 4,498 votes, beating Roy Ssemboga who garnered 4,287 votes.

Ssembogga petitioned Makerere electoral commission demanding for a recount of the votes.

Makerere EC on Tuesday overturned the results and requested fresh elections at the College of Education for all candidates.

On Wednesday, students from the College of Education refused to vote following the annulment and a strike a day before.

Mwotta too filed a suit in High Court challenging Ssemboga’s injunction seeking to block his swearing in over alleged irregularities.

On Wednesday evening, High Court stopped a vote recount and directed Makerere EC to swear in Mwotta.

Court directed Makerere University Council, Guild Election Petition Tribunal, and Electoral Commission Makerere University that the applicant (Mwotta) be declared the successful candidate of the March 11th 2016 election.
