Kampala Central Member of Parliament vote recount case ruling is today on Thursday after the Mengo chief magistrate court heard an application filed by National Unity Platform party candidate Fred Nyanzi.
Nyanzi is seeking for a vote recount claiming that the voting process and counting were marred by malpractices and irregularities committed by both the Electoral Commission officials and incumbent Muhammad Nsereko’s agents.
Nyanzi was defeated by the independent candidate Nsereko who got 16,998 votes against Nyanzi’s 15,975. However, Nyanzi says he was denied victory as Nsereko and his agents altered declaration of result forms and destroying original copies of the forms.
Some of the polling stations that Nyanzi seeks recounting include, Balikudembe Primary School, KCC Primary School polling stations, Seroma Parking Yard, All saints, Martin Road, Old Kampala SS, National Theatre, Nakivubo Road, Basajjabala Taxi Park, Kampala Library and Bombo Road among others.
