Katongole Singh was declared the winner for Rubaga North after a vote recount which Moses Kasibante had won. The High Court in Kampala has declared Moses Kasibante as the duly elected MP for Rubaga North.
Justice Kibuuka Musoke citing a clause from the Parliamentary and Presidential Elections Act faulted the Mengo Chief Magistrate for allowing a vote recount more so being done by a third party.
Court also ordered Katongole Singh to pay half the costs incurred on the case to Moses Kasibante. Court was also silent on whether there would be a re-run of the Rubaga North MP elections.
Kasibante's supporters on learning that court had ruled in their favour, they took to the streets something that did not go down well with police and accordingly unleashed teargas on Kasibante's supporters who ended up taking to their heels.
