MP Nakate wins back parliament seat

By Sania Babirye

The Court of appeal has reinstated  National Resistance Movement’s Lillian Nakate as the validly elected  Luweero Woman Member of Parliament.

Three justices  led by deputy chief justice Steven Kavuma have overturned the high court decision that had nullified  Nakate’s elections on grounds of voter bribery  and non compliance with electoral laws after DPs Brenda Nabukenya challenged her victory.

The court of appeal has however ruled that  Nabukenya failed to prove allegations of voter bribery and non compliance with electoral laws.

The court  of appeal has also ordered Nabukenya to pay Nakate costs of the case.
