Police and the army have deployed at Amama Mbabazi’s home in Kololo and sealed it off.

There are reports that Amama too was planning to release his own provisional results contrary to what the electoral commission is announcing.

Mbabazi has been trailing the two major candidates.

He was beaten at his home in Kanungu where he came third after Besigye and Museveni.

President Museveni won in the district with 17,017 votes, Dr Kizza Besigye, the opposition DFC flag bearer came second with 9, 473 votes and Mr Mbabazi, a distant third with 1, 075 votes.

Mbabazi continues to perform as poorly as candidates; Joseph Mabirizi (Independent), Abed Bwanika of (People’s Development Party), Benon Biraaro (Uganda Farmers Party), Maureen Kyalya (Independent), and Venansius Baryamureeba (Independent).

In the first round announced of provisional results announced at midnight, Go Forward candidate, Amama Mbabazi, has 2,246 votes [1.22%].

Maj Gen Benon Biraaro has 627 votes translating into 0.34%, Prof Venansius Baryamureeba has 984 votes representing 0.53%, Abed Bwanika has 1,723 votes [0.94%], Joseph Mabirizi has 503 which translates into 0.27% and Maureen Kyalya has 1,141 votes [0.62%].

In the second round, Go Forward candidate Amama Mbabazi got 41,291 votes [1.87%].

Candidate Abed Bwanika got 22,180 votes [1.00%], Prof Venansius Baryamureeba got 15,260 votes [0.69%], Joseph Mabirizi got 6,833 votes [0.31%].

This came at the same time polling agents from the Go Forward camp stormed Mbabazi’s house demanding to be paid.


Mbabazi entered the presidential race in 2014 after falling out with President Yoweri Museveni.

He was sacked from positions of Prime Minister and ruling party NRM Secretary General.
