Angry youths on Saturday stormed Arua Court and attempted to block the Terego
West MP Moses Angundru from filing an election petition.
Angundru lost the parliamentary seat to James Leku after obtaining
8,126 against 10,218 of Leku. Angundru first lost in the NRM primaries to Leku
and decided to contest as an independent candidate.
However, with a vote margin of over 2,000, Angundru decided to
travel to Arua to file a petition against Leku seeking the court to recount the
votes and also get answers why some ballots were counted late in the night.
However, some angry youths from Terego on hearing of Angundru’s
move mobilized and followed him to Arua Court where they threatened to beat him
for disturbing the peace of Leku who had won genuinely.
Over 60 youths scoffed at the MP, describing him as a failure in
the 10th Parliament who embarrassed them for scoring 3 percent in the
parliamentary scorecard released last year.
However the youths fled after security personnel intervened.
// Cue in;
Cue out: “…he
is a loss.//
Angundru, who finally filed the petition says that he has a genuine case to present to the court
and wonders why the youth decided to follow him up and attempting to beat him.
