In a remarkable electoral victory, Mr. Uthuman Mugisha Mubaraka, the candidate representing the National Resistance Movement (NRM), emerged as the triumphant winner in the Hoima District Local Council V (LCV) by-election held on September 14th.
The official announcement of the results was made on Thursday evening at the Dwoli Primary School tally center by Hoima District Returning Officer, Ms. Merab Kasande. The announcement took place in the esteemed presence of Justice Simon Byabakama, Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.
Mr. Uthuman’s journey to this victory holds personal significance, as he is the son of the late Kadiri Kirungi, the former district chairperson who tragically lost his life in a road accident on March 17th along the Kampala-Hoima road. His dedicated campaign and appeal to the electorate garnered a substantial total of 18,353 votes, securing his triumph in the by-election.
