Former polling agents of the Bulambuli district Woman Member of Parliament Sarah Nambozo Wekomba have threatened to drag her to court over unpaid allowances.

The 300 agents in Bulaago Sub County allege that they were appointed by Wekomba and deployed to various polling stations during the 2016 general elections.

According to the polling agents, they were each promised 30, 000 shillings.

However, up to date, they have never been paid.

Massa Amos, the coordinator of the agents, says that Wekomba has never bothered to pay them.

In a meeting held at Bulaago Trading center, the agents who displayed the appointment letters, gave Wekomba an ultimatum of one week to pay them or else they will drag her to the courts of law.

//Cue: “She appointed us …

Cue out… 10 appointment letters,"//.

Godfrey Gimei another agent said he used his personal motorcycle and fuel to mobilize Wekomba's supporters to vote.

//Cue: "Kwame kasera …

Cue out… mafuta,"//.

However, Wekomba insists the agents were paid. She claims that the allegations are being peddled by some of her political opponents.

Wekomba defeated her closest rival, Minister for Energy and Mineral Development Irene Muloni with 20,808 votes. Muloni garnered 20,240 votes.
