Umar Muhamad, 34, a Congolese national and resident of Kyaka II Refugee Camp in Kyegegwa District was on Tuesday charged with six offences. The charges are reckless driving, causing death through reckless driving and driving a motor vehicle without a valid driving permit.
During cross-examination, Bagala denied any wrongdoing and told the court that the election was perfect, free and fair. She also revealed that one of her agents identified as Norah Nantongo asked for 1 million Shillings to bribe voters, which she rejected.
Justice Baguma ruled that allowing the DR forms will not prejudice Ms Nabakooba in anyway because the same DR forms were indicated as attachments; so it is not a surprise or an ambush to the petitioner.
Bagala won the January 14 polls with a margin of 16,000 votes to defeat Nabakooba. But in March, Nabakooba filed a petition to challenge the outcome of the polls, alleging that Bagala was not validly elected to represent Mityana District in Parliament, on grounds that the Electoral Commission failed to secure conditions necessary for the conduct of the election.
