Bushenyi chief magistrate’s court presided over by Jane Mugara has today dismissed a vote recount application filed by Kibala Mbika against winner Naboth Nabasa of FDC in Rwentuha town council.
The chief magistrate earlier heard submissions from both sides of the applicant Kibala Mbika and the winner Naboth Nabasa of FDC for Rwentuha town council.
Kibala’s application requested for a recount at one polling station of Omukibare COU out of 9 polling stations.
The defense team was led by Turinawe and Kamba advocates while the applicant’s team was led by Owen Murangira.
The contestation by the Kibala team was on the fact that 191 votes cast for him at Omukibare, only 91 were recorded and 100 were neglected.
However, according to lawyer representing Naboth Nabaasa,Turinawe and Kamba advocates, Ms Mugura dismissed the applications because Kibala and team did not provide enough evidence and he secondly did not report to police early.
