New Museveni minister Nobert Mao criticizes NRM for stealing Soroti by election


The new minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs in the Museveni regime Nobert Mao has criticized the manner in which the NRM won yesterday’s By-election in Soroti East.

The returning officer Ms Christine Eyu declared NRM’s Herbert Ariko as the winner with 9,407 votes while his closest competitor Moses Attan of FDC got 8,771 votes.

This election however had many allegations of discrepancies such as ballot stuffing, voter bribery and excessive use of force by security forces.

According to Nobert Mao,this election clearly points out why NRM and DP signed an agreement centering other peaceful transition of power and fair elections.

The DP president added that Attan did not lose this election. Patriotic Ugandans won and this justified why there should be national dialogue on the politics in Uganda.

Mao has been under increased pressure from his critics after he signed a working partnership with the NRM a few days ago. Consequently he was appointed the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs by President Museveni.
