Following a hot contestation for who would carry the National Resistance Movement (NRM) flag for the position of Woman Member of Parliament, the NRM Electoral Commission has come out with a pronouncement.
Jennifer Muheesi has been declared the winner of last week’s contested NRM primary for Kazo woman MP. She was running against Molly Kamukama, a State Minister for Economic Monitoring in the office of the President and former Principal Private Secretary (PPS) to Mr. Museveni.
Before the announcement of results, last week a section of voters attacked the tally centre, tore declaration forms and an unknown person vanished with the laptop belonging to the NRM Electoral Commission officials.
On Saturday after the elections State Minister for Economic Monitoring Molly Nawe Kamukama had come out to claim she is the winner of the hotly contested Kazo Woman Member of Parliament Primaries.
“Despite an attack on the tally centre by one of my opponents and hired goons, I wish to inform all my supporters that I am firmly in the lead to win the NRM flag bearer position for Kazo Women MP”, Ms Kamukama said.
Former National Medical Stores (NMS) PRO Dan Kimosho won the Kazo County Directly elected MP seat beating incumbent Gordon Bafaki.
