DP's Brenda Nabukenya emerged the winner of the Luweero Woman MP seat beating NRM's Rebecca Nalwanga by over 16,000 votes. The NRM candidate maintains that she will accept the outcome of the vote.
Faridah Namubiru and Ramulah Kadaala were the other two candidates whose total votes were less than 2,000 when combined. Former Vice President Prof. Gilbert Bukenya of NRM was in Luweero to campaign for DP's Brenda Nabukenya something that did not go down well with National Resistance Movement (NRM) party members.
They are now considering disciplinary action against the Busiro County member of parliament.
In March, the Court of Appeal nullified the election of Luwero Woman MP that she was not elected in accordance with electoral laws. The first polls were held in February 2011 with Nabukenya winning her rival by only 30 votes. It was 14,945 for Nabukenya while Nalwanga polled 14,915.
This time around, that margin shot from 30 votes to over 16,000 votes.
