Moses Kigongo, the NRM National Vice chairperson has rushed to Eastern Uganda on a fact finding mission over the botched party primaries.
Eastern Uganda is one of the regions that registered the highest number of electoral related offenses in the NRM primary elections.
On Wednesday, Kigongo spent the entire days visiting hot spots in Iganga, Kibuku and Buslowe among others to mediate the conflicts resulting from the disputed polls.
Jennifer Namuyangu, the state minister for environment who is contesting the Kibuku poll results in an interview at the NRM headquarters in Kampala confirmed that Kingongo was in Kibuku.
// Cue In "As I talk now... Cue Out ... NRM they belong to?"//
Namuyangu who lost the polls is threatening to contest as an independent if fresh polls are not held immediately.
Lydia Wanyoto, a commissioner at the NRM electoral Commission says that Kigongo decided to visit the affected areas because of several petitions calling for the nullification of the Monday polls.
// Cue In "Some people are wanting... Cue Out ... those elections"//
The NRM electoral Commission was planning to hold polls in only seven districts where electoral materials arrived late, but Wanyoto says that the number has increased 41 districts.
Wanyoto says that by Wednesday, they were still receiving petitions from all parts of the country.
Some of the incumbents who have pitched camp at the NRM headquarters include, Ibanda North MP, David Guma Gumisiriza, Emmanuel Dombo and Beatrice Byenkya.
The trio claims that the polls in their area were marred with gross irregularities.
Bunyole County MP, Emmanuel Dombo says that he does not expect fair polls in Butaleja because of the vote rigging plan orchestrated by NRM Deputy Secretary General, Dorothy Hyuha and other NRM leaders.
// Cue In "There was an attempted fraud Cue Out...stealing votes"//
It is not yet clear, whether Kigongo will manage to persuade the losing candidates to accept defeat.
