Oulanyah, Kiyonga declared winners after losing elections




The deputy speaker of parliament, Jacob Oulanyah, is the winner of Omoro County parliamentary seat, without any results confirming his victory.

Akecha was leading in the provisional results with Oulanyah and three other candidates Walter Lamony Can-Ogura, Dick Denis Owani and Job Collin Okello, trialing.

Obete while declaring the results did not declare the number of votes  obtained  by Oulanyah saying that he had a tight schedule to tally votes for presidential candidates.

Kiyonga also “wins”
