The Kagoma MP seat fell vacant in March this year after three Court of Appeal Justices including Fredrick Engonda -Ntende, Paul Mugamba and Alfonse Owiny-Dollo annulled the election of Moses Walyomu over voter bribery.


They overturned an earlier decision by Jinja High Court that had dismissed the evidence of voter bribery presented by Walyomu's rival, Alex Brandon Kintu. Electoral Commission nominated four candidates for the by-elections scheduled for Thursday this week.

 
They include NRM's Moses Walyomu Muwanika, FDC's Timothy Lusala Batuwa, Muhammad Bizimack Bidondole and Alex Brandon Kintu, both independents.
