The National Resistance Movement party’s by election nightmare is far from over as they lose their 8th by election in Kasese.
The opposition chief whip Winnie Kiiza whose victory was annulled by court sometime in June beat NRM’s Rehema Muhindo to retain her Kasese woman MP seat. Amidst heavy deployment and massive arrest, FDC was still able to win the seat with margin 40,000 votes.
NRM has won only one by election- the Busiro north seat which was retained by former Vice President Gilbert Bukenya which is also attributed to his fall out with party bigwigs.
So far, the country has witnessed 8 by elections with two of Jinja woman MP and Butambala County still pending.
