Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] candidate, Paul Mwiru, has Tuesday been nominated to run in the Jinja East MP bey-election.
It is a serious rope pulling between FDC’s Paul Mwiru and NRM’s Nathan Igeme Nabeta who was recently kicked out of parliament by the Court of Appeal in Kampala.
Three justices including former deputy chief Justice Steven Kavuma, Richard Buteera and Paul Mugamba then ordered the Electoral Commission to organise fresh elections to fill the post that they has declared vacant.
The same court also ordered Nabeta and the electoral commission to pay costs to Mwiru for both the Court of Appeal and in the High Court.
Supporters of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) gathered at Ci’Sand hotel to rally their support behind their candidate Nabeta.
While speaking in the district a few days ago, President Museveni rallied Jinja to support NRM which delivers the needed services.
