The Court of Appeal has dismissed Aisha Waliggo's election petition against Aisha Ssekindi of NRM challenging the latter’s election as Woman Member of Parliament for Kalungu District.

The ruling read by the court registrar, Ssanyu Nalukwago, indicated that there was no sufficient evidence to prove that Ssekindi participated in election malpractices as alleged by DP’s Waligo.

Court ordered the petitioner to pay three quarters of the costs incurred by the former.

Following her defeat in the 2016 Kalungu woman parliamentary elections, Waliggo filed a petition challenging Ssekindi's election.

She prayed that Court nullifies her election on grounds that she never had the academic qualifications required for the contest.

Her petition was however, dismissed by Masaka High Court Judge Michael Elubu.
