NRM Primaries: Tanga Odoi Nullifies Butemba Results 

Published

on


The National Resistance Movement party electoral commission chairman, Dr. Tanga Odoi has nullified the primary elections results for Butemba County in Kyankwanzi district.

The lately ‘no nonsense’ Tanga Odoi, who has canceled the results of several ministers and NRA historical, made the pronouncement on Butemba County on Monday afternoon. Michael Katungi had been declared the winner.

“The NRM primary election result for Butemba has been suspended,” said Tanga.

Five contestants in the race had disagreed with the Katungi Victory and petitioned Tanga Odoi demanding for the nullification of results.

The contestants including incumbent Innocent Pentagon Kamusiime, former MP Samuel Ssemugaba, Peter Babu Kabango, Patrick Nyanzi Bingi and Richard Ruhinda Nganwa said in their petition that Katungi was defeated but weirdly declared the winner under tight security.

The aggrieved contestants also demanded that all sub-county and district registrars be tasked to produce evidence indicating that Katungi won since the declaration forms clearly show the he lost.

“Despite general counting of votes which ended at each polling station at approximately 2 pm, the winner was declared the next day at 6 am under tight security. At that time, all candidates and their agents were chased away and Katungi Michael was declared winner with no number of votes attached to support his victory,” reads part of the petition.

Speaking to journalists at parliament last week about the petition, Pentagon Kamusiime said that there was intimidation of candidates and their agents at the tally centre. He noted that one of his agents was beaten in front of police and the army officers but nothing was done.

Museveni Address Rescheduled To Sunday

The Presidential Address on COVID-19 has been postponed to Sunday, September 20, 8pm according to Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama.

Wanyama through his Twitter said: “Good people, the Presidential Address on COVID-19 has been rescheduled to Sunday, September 20th, at 8pm. It will be live on TVs and radios. Asante,” Mr. Wanyama tweeted.

This week, the President summoned a special cabinet meeting to determine the future of learners and other sectors such as bars, sports and music events.

Last week, there were reports that schools, especially candidate classes are set to reopen for the second term that will end in mid-December, and that third term was to begin in January or February, whereas UNEB exams are to be written in March or April 2021.

However, Minister for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and National Guidance, Judith Nabakooba urged the public to ignore these kinds of reports that are speculating about the reopening of academic institutions.

Nabakooba said that only President Yoweri Museveni has the mandate to reopen schools and all other institutions that were closed as a measure to combat the spread of the Coronavirus.

“The mandate to guide the nation on the reopening of schools and other institutions is with His Excellency the President of Uganda,”

“When it comes to the national COVID-19 response, I want to call upon Ugandans to be calm and ignore some of the speculative messages regarding the reopening of public institutions.”

The Ministry of Education was the first to dismiss the reports as being untrue and asked parents to disregard the same.

In total, Uganda’s health ministry has to-date declared 5,594 Coronavirus cases, of whom over 61 have died and 2,544 have recovered.
