CHEBROT LOSES ELECTION CASE

By UTN Reporter

Kampala - The Court of Appeal confirms Kenneth Soyekwo as the validly elected MP for Tingey County in Kapchorwa District.

This after three Justices including Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma, Elizabeth Musoke and Paul Mugamba dismissed an election appeal filed by Dr. Steven Chebrot on grounds that he failed to prove the allegations of bribery against Soyekwo.

Dr.Chebrot who is the former Minister for Transport stood on the NRM ticket while MP Soyekwo stood as an independent.

However the Judges observed that much as over 141 voters of Chebot polling station were disfranchised when their results were cancelled over violence and alterations in Declaration of Result forms, but this was not substantial enough to nullify the election result since all the 5 candidates were affected.

The Judges have now ordered that the Electoral Commission pays a third of the costs of this petition to Dr. Chebrot for the said disfranchisement.

While the confirmed MP should be paid two thirds of the costs by EC and Dr. Chebrot.
