By Grace Matsiko MBARARA High Court Judge Musoke Kibuuka will on September 18, give verdict on the election petition against industry state minister, Dr. Richard Nduhuura (pictured) by retired UPDF officer, Spencer Turwomwe. Musoke made the ruling at the closure of submissions by Nduhuura, Turwomwe and the Electoral Commission (EC) lawyers. Nduhuura is represented by Paul Kiapi while Ngaruye Ruhindi is for Turwomwe and Christine Kaahwa represents EC. The judge put to task the EC for not updating voters’ ages on the national registers. This was after Kaahwa said it was likely that since 1998, despite the updating of the registers, voters’ ages have not been changed. It is alleged Nduhuura voted twice in the June parliamentary elections in Igara West Constituency, Bushenyi. His name appears twice in the national voters register but with varying ages. The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) over a month ago cleared Nduhuura over allegations of multiple voting. But the judge said, “Would the register be telling the truth if I am 50 and it says I am 44?” Musoke asked. He said the update of age in registers would help polling officials to ascertain the identity of voters. Kiapi said the petitioner had failed to prove Nduhuura voted twice. He said the results reflected the wishes of the voters of Igara West. Ends
