A section of Nansana Municipality residents in Wakiso District have asked the Constitutional court to re-call NRM's Robert Kasule Ssebunya as their MP and order the Electoral Commission organise fresh elections inorder to express their free will by electing a representative they want.

The Petitioners including; Namiiro Margret, Nalunkuuma Ritah, Nakiyingi Annet, Mugerwa Fred Lwanga, Nakabaale John, Ntale Kuraish Kalema, Ssali Isaac and Nationala Action for Awakening Uganda(Sisimuka Uganda) have  sued the Attorney General, the Electoral Commission and MP Robert Kasule Ssebunya.

They want a panel of five Constitutional Court Justices to interprete and set aside the Judgement of High court Judge Vicent Okwanga that was also confirmed by the Court of Appeal nullifying the election of FDC's Wakayima Musoke and declared Kasule Sebunya an act they say disenfranchised him.

Today Constitutional Court registrar Esther Nambayo has set a fresh date of 30/May for parties to appear for a confrencing heraing before the case file is fowarded to the trial panel.

Last year the Court of Appeal nullified the election of DP’s Wakayima Musoke as Nansana Municipality MP, after concurring with High court Judge Vincent Okwanga, that he is not a registered voter which is one of the cardinal requirements of any aspiring to contest as MP Court observed that the name Wakayima Musoke Nsereko which he used for his nomination for the Nansana municipality seat, did not appear in the voters’ register but rather the name Musoke Hannington Nsereko which appears on his national identification card.

The Judge then declared NRM’s Robert Kasule Ssebunya, who was the second runner-up in the February 2016 elections.
