A serious chaos and tension has erupted in Kazo District, Western Uganda as National Resistance Movement (NRM) halted the results of Woman MP after intelligence leaked that there were some irregularities, Spyreports has exclusively learnt.
According to information obtained by spyreports, NRM head of Electoral Commission Dr Tanga Odoi yesterday announced that Jennifer Muhesi the wife to UPDF General Geoffrey Muhesi was the winner beating her main rival State Minister for Economic Monitoring and former Private Secretary to President Museveni Hon Molly Kamukama.
Sources revealed to us that shortly after Tanga Odoi had announced Jenifer Muhesi as winner; he was informed that there were sore irregularities in results from one of the polling station called Mugore. “Results showed that Jenifer Muhesi had got 145 votes from Mugore polling stations yet she had scored only 42 votes,” says one of the sources adding that this prompted Tanga Odoi to cancel his earlier communications declaring Muhesi a winner pending investigations.
Sources added that when Tanga Odoi halted results, chaos from both parties erupted and security had to come in to cool the situation. “Our Candidate Jenifer Muhesi won the elections but NRM and Tanga Odoi want to favor Molly Kamukama because she is a minister and former PPS to President Museveni,” one of the Jenifer Muhesi’s supporters was quoted shouting.
However, some supporters of Molly Kamukama said Gen Muhesi heavily deployed army to support his wife yet she had no support on the ground. Sources say Tanga Odoi will not announce the results. “We now expect Tanga Odoi to announce the final results but Jenifer Muhesi and Molly Kamukama are chasing each other,” says a source from NRM.
The source adds that they expect more chaos if one of the two is announced the winner because each Candidate expects to win the race. The race for the seat had five people that include Minster Kamukama, Jenifer Muhesi, Annah Ruyondo among others.
Mean while there is heavily deployment in areas of Kazo, Kiruhura to make sure that there is no violence and chaos after elections. “We fear a lot of past election violence so we have heavily deployed to make sure peace prevails after elections,” says a security source who is on ground.
