DP’s Muwanga Kivumbi wins Butambala elections
The newly elected MP for Butambala County, Muwanga Kivumbi has a lot to do in his constituency. Butambala is so remote, people still stand on anti hills to get telephone network, and the roads in this constituency are hell.
Muwanga defeated NRM’s Faisal Kikulukunyu with a margin of over 800 votes. The seat fell vacant after the court nullified Kikulukunyu’s election victory over voter bribery.
DP has taken Butambala from the ruling party NRM. Gen Kayihura withdrew to the capital city of Uganda, Kampala for further instructions. This is the third pick up for DP now the second largest opposition party in parliament after FDC!
