By Ebenezer T. Bifubyeka NGOMA Ngime, former Mbarara Municipality parliamentary candidate, has asked the Electoral Commission to re-count the municipality's ballot papers for Tuesday's election. He claims there were mistakes in the electoral process. Ngime, in a press statement yesterday said, "We have rejected the results which Mbarara district Returning Officer Hezzy Kereerera Kafureka announced on June 27 early in the morning because there were many fatal mistakes in the electoral process." Kafureka refuted the results published by The New Vision yesterday which said Winnie Byanyima won the election with 9,880 votes. He said Byanyima got 9,980 votes and Ngime, 9,816 votes. "Byanyima defeated Ngime with 164 votes," he said. Ngime said, "I request all my supporters to remain calm and peaceful as we pursue this matter using appropriate channels." He thanked residents for the support he received in the elections. Kafureka said, "We have already finished tallying and declared results, let Ngoma Ngime go ahead and sue Byanyima." Byanyima beat Ngime in Kakoba Ward with 2,622 against 2,255 votes. In Nyamityobora Ward, he beat Byanyima with 2,770 votes against 2,277. In Nyamitanga, Byanyima defeated Ngime with 1,767 votes against 1,757 and in Kamukuzi Ward, with 3,314 votes against 3,034. Kafureka yesterday also declared Amon Muzoora of Rwampara county and Johnson Nkuhe of Isingiro South constituency winners. Ends
