“I Dr. Tanga Odoi hereby declare the results from the Nyabushozi county NRM primaries. Christopher Bakashaba got 0 votes, Fred Mwesigye got 14121 votes which accounts for 38.9% and Wilson Kajwengye got  22148 votes which accounts for 51.1% . I therefore declare Wilson Kajwengye as the newly elected NRM MP of  Nyabushozi county Kiruhura district.”he said.

Col. Fred Mwesigye was first declared as the Nyabushozi county NRM party candidate on September 4th primaries by District Registrar, David Agom Andiinda.

Kajwengye opposed the results and petitioned the party leadership claiming massive fraud and irregularities.

Following the findings of the investigations, Museveni directed the NRM Electoral Commission Chairperson Dr.Tanga Odoi to conduct fresh polls.
