Electoral Commission has cleared four candidates to battle for Kagoma County parliamentary seat.
The two day nomination exercise attracted National Resistance Movement(NRM) flag bearer Moses Walyomu, Independent Alex Brandon Kintu, FDC’s Timothy Batuwa Lusala, and independent Bidondole Muhammad.
The exercise was conducted by Jinja District Returning Officer Tonny Ambrose Mwaita at Kagoma County headquarters.
The Kagoma MP seat fell vacant in March after Court presided over by three Justices; Fredrick Engonda -Ntende, Paul Mugamba and Alfonse Owiny-Dollo annulled the election of Moses Walyomu over voter bribery.
The justices overturned a decision of Jinja High Court that had rejected evidence of voter bribery against Walyomu which had been brought against him by his opponent Alex Brandon Kintu.
They ruled that Kintu brought satisfactory evidence that on January 3rd, 2016, Walyomu bribed a community of voters with 500, 000 shillings through the leaders of Mawoito mosque.
