The newly elected Kampala Central Member of Parliament, Hon Muhammad Nsereko, has publicly vowed to never forgive his political rival Fred Nyanzi Ssentamu alias Chairman Nyanzi shortly after a torrid court session in which his (Nyanzi) petition against Nsereko’s election victory was dismissed.
Addressing journalists on Thursday afternoon after defeating Nyanzi in court, Nsereko said that the petition seeking to have a vote recount for the Kampala Central mayoral election, filled by Chaitman Nyanzi, was intended to destroy his political career.
“My friend Nyanzi, even if you send whoever, I will not forgive you for this. We have been helping you from the past in all court cases but this is not the way you pay us for our forgiving heart,” Nsereko said.
Nsereko gave Nyanzi a three-day ultimatum to pay him all the costs incurred in the case without fail.
“Whatever court he wants to go to, let him go, I am ready to defeat him. We have defeated him here, let him go to High Court, or up to the Court of Appeal, we shall still defeat him. He should, however, also prepare for the costs,” Nsereko roared on.
He also noted that this fight is not about challenging his victory but weakening the struggle with the support of “invisible hands.”
“When we return to Parliament, I want to table a motion to have a law which will require all MP hopefuls to go for mental tests before contesting for any parliamentary seat,” he said.
Dismissing the petition seeking vote recounting, the Magistrate ordered Chairman Nyanzi to pay the respondent (Electoral Commission and Muhammad Nsereko) costs for the case.
