A group of disgruntled voters from Budadiri West constituency in Mbale have for the second day struggled in vain to seek audience with the NRM party's Deputy Electoral commissioner.
Led by Rogers Wadada Musaalo, the voters want the party's electoral commission to reverse the candidacy of the NRM Deputy Chief whip Kosima Busima Mafabi.
They claim that the Party's electoral commission chairman, Prof. Elijah Mushemeza, declared Mafabi winner of the Party primaries without notifying his rival contestant.
Wadada Rogers contested against Mafabi and was declared winner. But the results were reversed in favor of Mafabi following a petition he filed earlier.
Statistics from the NRM electoral commission indicate that Wadada won the primaries with 18,559 votes, against Mafabi's 15,779 votes.
The demonstrators are now demanding that the electoral commission reverses its decision and clears their candidate.
Wadada says that he must either be declared winner or he heads to court to seek a court injuction against his rival.
//Cue in..If there was any."
Wadada says they have so far been summoned to Kyadondo three times, but on all occasions, nothing tangible has been done.
//Cue in...guys sat here."
Cue out..has been done."//
Efforts to get a comment from the Deputy Chief whip have been fruitless since his phone has been off all day.
The NRM electoral Commission has persistently said all election related cases will be handled before the 20th of this month.
However, as the Parliamentary nominations start on the 24th and 25th this month, it is yet to be seen how the many pending petitions will affect the process.
Prof. Mushemeza recently said all complaints would be handled until the last day of nominations.
