NRM MP Makumbi survives being ejected


Henry Makumbi retains Mityana South seat

High Court has upheld the victory of Henry Kamya Makumbi as the Member of Parliament for Mityana South.

This followed the dismissal of a petition filed against him by Democratic Party’s Richard Lumu who run against him for the same seat earlier this year.

This leaves him as the standing leader chosen by the people to voice their issues of their constituency.

The jovial Kamya says that the judge ruled in his favour because there was not enough evidence presented before court to justify the several electoral offences he was accused of by the his counterpart Lumu.

He adds that he is all set to go serve his people as genuinely elected.

Henry Kamya Makumbi has formerly made an attempt to go to parliament by vying for the same post in 2011 but only emerged successful this year.

Kamya’s victory comes in handy to secure and seal the National Resistance Movement seat among the legislators owing to the fact that many have lost their positions due to either education queries or several electoral offences.

Meanwhile, William Nokrach, the Northern Uganda Member of Parliament for Persons with Disabilities- PWD also survived an election petition.

On Friday, High Court Justice Joseph Mulangira threw out an election petition filed by Joyce Okeny Achan challenging the election of Nokrach.
