Isingiro – Gun fire over NRM results’ dispute
Gun fire rocked Ngarama Sub County in Bukanga Isingiro district as locals in the area destroyed NRM party materials during a protest against the results from the party primaries of the sub county chairperson slot for Ngarama sub county.
Some of the materials destroyed were membership cards, branded caps and T-shirts.
The residents doubted the election results announced by the sub county registrar Robert Baingana which put Silver Kiiza in the lead against his opponent Benon Matsiko who claimed he enjoyed the majority support.
The locals demanded an explanation for the registrar announcing results different from what he had earlier received from his agents.
Benon Matsiko said the election results he had earlier gathered showed that he got 4377 votes against 3930 pulled by Silver Kiiza who was announced the victor.
The district NRM registrar Vianney Taremwa said that plans were under way to look into a petition which was filed but hastened to add that Silver Kiiza is still considered the NRM flag bearer for the sub county chairperson seat.
