SALAAM MUSUMBA WINS ELECTION APPEAL

By UTN Reporter

Kampala - The Court of Appeal in Kampala has ejected Kamuli Municipality MP Rehema Watongola out of Parliament after failing to raise the required minimum academic papers equivalent to senior six.

The court also declared the Kamuli Municipality seat vacant, ordering fresh polls. Former Kamuli district Chairperson, also opposition FDC Vice President Salaam Musumba had challenged Hajjat Watongola’s election.

The three justices of the Court of Appeal Richard Buteera, Barishaki Cheborion and Paul Mugamba, ruled that when MP Watongola’s academic papers were questioned, she failed to prove the authenticity of the same, prompting them to declare her nomination illegal and subsequently declared her seat vacant.

The justices also ordered Watongola to pay Musumba all the costs. Hajjat Watongola and Ms Salaam Musumba contested for the Kamuli Municipality seat in Last year’s general elections, alongside other two, before Watongola became victorious.

Musumba challenged her opponent’s election in the high court, which concurred with her, that Hajjat Watongola’s academic papers were wanting. Watongola immediately appealed to the higher court.
