Ibanda.

The ruling NRM Electoral Commission has declared Jovrine Kaliisa Kyomukama as the officer winner of the hotly contested elections for the NRM Ibanda district woman parliamentary flag in 2021 elections.

Kyomukama was declared by Dr. Tanga Odoi, the NRM electoral commission chairman on Saturday after a vote recount at Kyandondo the NRM headquarters in Kampala.

This followed a petition filed by Jovrine Kaliisa Kyomukama to the NRM elections disputes tribunal that was previously authorized by the party chairperson and the president of Uganda to resolve dissatisfactions that resulted from the just concluded NRM party primaries elections.

Bainomugisha had been declared winner by Moses Arimwerenga the Ibanda district NRM registrar with 37,606 votes while Kyomukama garnered 37,439 votes leaving a difference of only 167 votes. Kiboijana Magret had polled 19,319 Elivaida Twesigye 1,555 and Asimire Obeth 607

The win sparked off anger and dissatisfaction from Kyomukama’s camp who accused Jane Bainomugisha of rigging votes and conniving with the NRM registrar Ibanda district to alternate results on the Declaration forms.

However after the recount, Kyomukama emerged the eventual winner, with 38,124 votes. Her close rival Jane Bainomugisha polled 37,666 votes.

Speaking to the media, Kyomukama asked the loser and all NRM supporters to rally behind her for the betterment of the NRM party.

Kyomukama couldn’t hide her joy after being declared the winner of the party flag. She told our reporter on the phone that truth will remain the truth no matter what

“I have got the truth I have been looking for and finally the winner was declared. I thank the people of Ibanda for patiently waiting for the truth to prevail” added Kyomukama.

Efforts to get a comment from Jane Bainomugisha were futile.
