Democratic Party's Betty Bakireke Nambooze won the Mukono-North by-election beating NRM's Rev. Peter Bakaluba. Nambooze polled 16,142 while Rev. Bakaluba got 14,302 with the other four candidates all getting below 60 votes.
Democratic Party leader Nobert Mao and Forum for Democratic party head Dr.Kizza Besigye were all drumming up support for Betty Nambooze while President Museveni and other NRM top guns did the same for Rev. Peter Bakaluba.
The by-election was ordered by the supreme court after Rev. Peter Bakaluba lost a case of using electoral offences to secure his win which lasted four years. Every time Betty secured a win, Bakaluba could appeal.
