News coming to our desk indicate that the high court in Mbale has thrown out another member of parliament out of the prestigious and lucrative August house over academic papers.
Ogwari won the 2021 general elections as the member of parliament for Agule constituency as an independent candidate with 7190 votes followed by NRM’s David Ochwa who got 6908 votes, Obeke Adam 2430 votes, FDC’s Andrew Omagor Erokode got 740 votes, DP’s Aisu Godwin Isaac got 115 votes and Emuge James came last with 104 votes.
Being dissatisfied with the results, David Ochwa of NRM petitioned the Mbale high court seeking nullification of Ogwali’s election on grounds that the election was not done in accordance with the laws sighting bribery and intimidation of voters. On 14th September 2021, the same court upheld Ogwali’s election which prompted Ochwa to move to the court of appeal which instead ordered a retrial.
According to information so far collected by our snoops in Mbale, indicate that the high court has also ordered for fresh elections in Agule country in Palissa district following a retrial which was ordered by the court of appeal early this year to the lower court.
