The Independent Electoral Commission has declared NRM candidate Eddie Kwizera as the winner of the Bukimbiri County MP by-election. 

Kwizera polled 12214 votes against his closest rival and Independent candidate Asigario Turyagyenda’s 10105 votes. 

On the other side, FDC’s James Owebeyi polled 280 votes and Mutabaazi Edward (Ind) got 308 votes. 

“I declare Eddie Kwizera having obtained the largest number of votes, the winner for Bukimbiri County MP Seat ,” the district Returning Officer Mr. Daniel Nayebare, said.

Independent candidate Asigario Turyagyenda who polled 10105 votes said he would re seek justice after the election was allegedly infiltrated by electoral malpractices which he said ruined his victory.

The parliamentary seat for Bukimbiri county fell vacant following a court ruling that brought aside the results of the 2021 elections
