Mbale City Mayoral Seat: Court Maintains Namugali’s Victory


Shortly after polls, NRM’s former mayoral contestant Vincent Magombe filed a petition against FDC‘s Cassimu Namugali on grounds of voter bribery and violence.

The court in Mbale has however dismissed the petition against Namugali.

Justice Anthony Ojok Oyuku dismissed the petition on grounds that it had no satisfactory evidence that would justify the complainant’s request to have Namugali’s Victory nullified.

Meanwhile, Magombe has declined to accept a court decision where he said that he would appeal against the court decision.

Magombe says he totally never agreed with the decision which justifies his need to have a panel of three judges decide the fate of the Mbale City’s mayoral seat.

My legal team through counsel Jude Byamukama from JByamukama & Co. Advocates are finalizing with the bank payment so that we file our appeal in a timely manner,” he said.
