A heated argument has erupted between supporters of Juliet Wanyana and Aisha Namutebi who are contesting for the NRM flag for the position of Woman Councilor in Nakulabye parish, Lubaga division.

Drama ensued when the presiding officer Isaac Ahebwa declared that Juliet Wanyana, a resident of  Suzzana Zone I had emerged winner with 615 votes and Namutebi, her main challenger had obtained only 89 votes.

While the victor's side started jubilating, Namutebi's supporters demanded a rerun, which, however, the presiding officer rejected.

//Cue in; "Wadde kagenzemu abayaaye...

Cue out....ekipande nina okikwaya."//

While the presiding officer was discussing with the police officers who had just been called to restore order,  the area chairman, a one Bukenya Remegio stormed the meeting dismissing the outcome of the polls. He insisted that the zone did not have more than 600 voters as indicated on the declaration forms.

Bukenya was subsequently joined by several dissatisfied residents, a situation that degenerated into chaos moments later. Without giving any explanation, the presiding officer changed Wanyana's results to 215 votes.

//Cue in; "Wabaddewo obululu olukaaga...

Cue out....takolya ki, obwongo talina."//

The Presiding Officer faulted the village chairman for masterminding the chaos.

//Cue in; "Naye ate obuvuyo obusingidde...

Cue out....okitegera, ...tetubyagala."//

But Bukenya said that he would fight tooth and nail for a rerun because the outcome of the polls does not reflect the situation on the ground.

//Cue in; "What was supposed...

Cue out....we're going to re-elect."//

//Cue in; "Twabadde tutekwa okulonda...

Cue out: ....mugambye fulumya results."//

But Wilson Mwanje, one of the polling agents insisted that voting can't be repeated because voters had already dispersed.

//Cue in; "The competition is...

Cue out.... was coming out."//
