Mbabazi lawyers inspect EC tally sheets, say some missing


Uganda electoral commission Friday availed all declaration forms and tally sheets to Amama Mbabazi’s lawyers.

The event took place at EC offices along Jinja road in Kampala.

This came after Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the electoral body to produce the documents as demanded by Mbabazi’s lawyers.

Chief Justice Bart Katureebe warned EC that they would be going against the law by not availing the forms.

Mbabazi claims in his petition that his votes in about 54 districts were given to incumbent President Yoweri Museveni.

He wanted to compare the results from his agents with those on EC tally sheets to streamline the matter.

Mbabazi lawyers speak:
Mbabazi’s lawyers, Severino Twinobusingye, Muhammad Mbabazi and Michael Akampuria as well as his daughter Nina Mbabazi were present.  So was the EC spokesperson, Jotham Taremwa and Deputy Chairperson Joseph Biribonwa.

They were ushered into the boardroom where they inspected the DR forms and tally sheets.

Things worth noting were; a disc image of the database record of election results transmission and distribution system and voters’ verified semantics.

At the end of the exercise, the lawyers told reporters some documents and other items were missing.

Severino who spoke on their behalf said the biometric voter machine used in the elections was not shown to them.

EC’s legal representative Enock Barata said Mbabazi had asked to inspect all the 11 batches of provisional

Presidential and DR forms from Kiruhura, Wakiso, Kampala and Luweero districts which were produced.
