The National Resistance Movement has refused to concede the Jinja East election to FDC’s Paul Mwiru who was declared winner by the Electoral Commission.
Mwiru scored 6654 votes to Nabeta’s 5043 according to the official results.
Addressing the media in Jinja today, Kasule Lumumba the secretary general of the NRM said Mwiru’s election was “riddled with various electoral malpractices like multiple voting, voter bribery and intimidation of voters.”
Lumumba said they had instructed the party’s legal team to assess the evidence and advise on appropriate action.
“An election is a process not an event,” she said.
