Professor Elijah Dickens Mushemeza who was slated to be declared a winner in NRM Primaries elections has rejected the inflated results.
“We have rejected the inflated results that give candidate Ephraim Kamuntu a false lead with less than 100 votes.
There were attempts to hijack our DR forms as we approached the tally centre,” Mushemeza said.
There were allegations that over 300 unaccounted for votes were found in the tally Centre and were in favour incumbent Hon. Ephraim Kamuntu.
Below is the full statement from Elijah Mushemeza on Sheema South Electoral Mess
September 5th 2020
Dear Supporters and Media
I would like to inform you that we won the NRM Primary Elections for Sheema South constituency but our victory was stolen.
We have rejected the inflated results that give candidate Ephraim Kamuntu a false lead with less than 100 votes.
There were attempts to hijack our DR forms as we approached the tally centre.
Tally of Sheema South results was unnecessarily delayed to give our main opponent time to manipulate DR forms especially in areas where our agents were chased from polling stations and we could not access official results.
Our tally gives us a clear victory ahead of candidate Ephraim Kamuntu.
Our position is that the NRM EC should declare candidate Mushemeza as a winner or the election of NRM flag bearer for MP Sheema South should be cancelled and a fresh one organized.
Team Prof Elijah Mushemeza (PEM) appeals to all our supporters to remain calm, observe COVID-19 MOH guidelines for safety as we pursue justice in the ongoing electoral process in Sheema South.
Prof Elijah Dickens Mushemeza
