According to Musiime, the allegations of malpractices, illegalities against her and the Commission as well as cases of bribery are misconceived because there is no such an issue that was purportedly reported to her.
Nyanzi, a candidate of the opposition National Unity Platform lost the bid to Parliament to Nsereko in polls held on January 14. According to results released by the Electoral Commission, Nsereko, an independent candidate, polled 16,998 Votes, against Nyanzi’s 15,975 votes.
On January 22 2021, Nyanzi asked the Mengo Chief Magistrates Court to order for a vote recount but the Chief Magistrate Esther Nansambu dismissed his application six days later. Nansambu reasoned that Nyanzi was raising matters of electoral offenses which would only be determined by the high Court which has jurisdiction to entertain such.
