Former Luwero woman MP, Brenda Nabukenya staged a political rally in Luwero to communicate her next move after the high court nullified her from the seat and ordered for fresh elections.
The High Court in Kampala ordered for fresh elections following the rule by Justice Vicente Zeukerize that the electoral body (EC) did not comply with electoral laws in the November 2011 by-elections.
“My lawyers filed an appeal but the people will have to listen to me and we decide what next, for the last eight months there has been a change” she said while addressing the journalists at the DP headquarters in Kampala.
However, according to Democratic Party they are ready for a rerun and are mobilizing people so that she comes back in the 9th parliament.
“As DP we think Brenda is not responsible for anything, it was the electoral commission, as leaders we are going to mobilize people so that she comes back to the parliament but Brenda and her lawyers will decide” DP president Norbert Mao said.
NRM’s Rebecca Nalwanga petitioned court protesting the Luweero district returning officer, Peter Kasozi’s decision to stop a vote recount exercise. Nabukenya beat Nalwanga with a small margin of 30 votes but NRM candidate protested the results and demanded for a recount.
Nabukenya won the race with 14,945 votes against Nalwanga’s 14,915 votes.
