The loser of the Ndorwa East County Member of Parliament seat Protazio Begumisa has petitioned the High Court seeking for nullification of Wilfred Niwagaba’s victory.
Begumisa who is the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party flag bearer garnered 15, 826 votes while Niwagaba got 15,962 votes.
According to the petition, Niwagaba connived with his brother-in-law Alexander Kyokwijuna, a business consultant and a resident of Kigarama in maziba sub-county and harassed his agents especially in the sub-counties of Maziba and Buhara.
Begumisa also alleges that Niwagaba connived with police officers who had been deployed in Ndorwa East to rig his victory.
Niwagaba who has been a member of parliament for Ndorwa East since 2006 says that Begumisa has a right to seek legal redress.
