Kampala Central MP, Muhammad Nsereko, has promised to campaign for disgraced Luwero Woman MP Brenda Nabukenya who has been kicked out of parliament following the nullification of her election by court on Thursday.
Speaking to the press at Parliament, Hon Nsereko said that Nabukenya has to come back to Parliament because all the circumstances which led her to win NRM in last year’s by-elections still exist. He noted that people in Luwero are still battling with unemployment, bad infrastructural services and rampant poverty among others.
“I will lobby my colleagues from NRM to go and campaign for Nabukenya and make sure that we bring her back to parliament,” Hon Nsereko stated.
“Nakukenya is patriotic, principled and ready to fight for the freedom of the common man,” he added.
The High Court in Kampala nullified the election of Brenda Nabukenya and ordered for fresh elections yesterday morning.
Justice Vicente Zeukerize ruled that the Electoral Commission did not comply with electoral laws in the November 2011 by-elections after NRM’s Rebecca Nalwanga petitioned court protesting the Luweero district returning officer, Peter Kasozi’s decision to stop a vote recount exercise.
According to the returning officer, one of the ballot boxes had been tampered with.
