TWO candidates vying for the Kabale LC5 seat have asked the electoral commission to explain the legality of their third opponentâ€™s candidature, report Darious Magara and Hannington Mbabazi.
Geoffrey Nzaana and Dennis Nkwasibwe alleged that the electoral commission used a forged number to nominate Adison Kakuru last month.
The district registrar Idi Kahwa, however, said that Kakuru was a registered voter although he does not appear in the votersâ€™ register.
He clarified that Kakuruâ€™s registration details are in the Electoral Commission database.
â€œThis is to request you to furnish us with the materials in your database which proves that he is a registered voter,â€ they wrote.
Kakuru maintains that he is a registered voter and would be stupid not to register.
The news of whether Kakuru is registered or not has created controversy.
