NRM supporters  poured onto the streets to jubilate the victory after the announcement by the returning officer Douglas Matsiko.

The opposition has already cried foul claiming there was voter bribery and rigging by the NRM.

The seat fell vacant after the incumbent Tophace Kaahwa Byagira opted to represent the people of the newly created Kikuube district that was carved out of Hoima and became operational on July 1, 2019
