Court has kicked out Igara East MP Andrew Martial from parliament following petition by his nemesis Michael Mawanda.
Mawanda, a former MP of the said constituency – not satisfied with 2016 election results – petitioned authorities, citing malpractices.
According to Mawanda, there were irregularities in the voting, tallying and announcing of results like arithmetic variations on the result declaration forms, creation of non gazetted polling stations, ballot stuffing, intimidation, defamation by agents of his opponent and bribery.
The decision to throw out Martial from Parliament was reached by judges Egoda Ntende, Richard Buteera and new deputy chief justice Owiny Odolo.
