"We have not found evidence to support the Appellant's allegations of bribery against the first Respondent/Muhwezi. The learned trial Judge was therefore right in finding that the Appellant did not cite any provisions of the law not complied with for the petitioner to obtain a remedy under the Parliamentary Elections Act," reads the judgment.
In 48 Sub Counties and Town Councils in the districts Amuru, Nwoya, Omoro and Gulu, NRM took 24 seats while independent candidates scooped 12 seats. The Democratic Party –DP and Forum for Democratic Change –FDC took six positions each in the Sub –Counties and Town Councils across the four districts.
Records from the Electoral Commission offices in Arua City indicate that FDC party only nominated candidates for two constituencies of Arua Central and City Woman while DP failed to field candidates for City Woman and Ayivu East.
Kamya a founding Member of Reform Agenda which later rebranded to FDC claims that Besigye for unknown reasons refused to believe in the current leadership of the party which forced him to form a parallel shadow government at Katonga road in Kampala.
Roland Mugume Kagyinda, FDC’s Deputy President in Charge of the Western Region says that despite their common mission of ousting the National Resistant Movement (NRM) government, some of its members are more focused on fighting for small political positions instead of building grassroots structures.
