KAMPALA MAYORAL POLLS: Nabilah Naggayi Ssempala the Kampala lord mayoral candidate of the National Unity Platform and Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chamelone (Independent) have dismissed election results citing rigging from FDC’s Erias Lukwago in the just concluded Kampala mayoral polls.
Although official results from the poll are yet to be announced by the Electoral Commission, at the time of writing, Lukwago who is the incumbent Lord Mayor had established an insurmountable lead over his rivals with celebrations already kicked off across the city and on social media.
Nabila alleges that the mixing of voting materials and other incidents were intentionally being done to disenfranchise voters in the capital city in favour of Erias Lukwago.
“Voting in Kampala was hampered by a deliberate mix-up of parish ballot packing lists being taken to other divisions,” Nabilah said.
She accused some opposition politicians of plotting to fail her
Chameleone on the other hand said that his team “apprehended” individuals who were involved in vote rigging on Tuesday.
“My team apprehended some characters who were trying to carry out malpractice in this election. Some of them had weapons but we will leave police to handle the matter,” he said.
