Independent Arua Municipality parliamentary candidate Hon Wadri Kassiano Ezati wins from jail in Gulu Central Police Station.
He won the parishes the parishes of Bazaar, Awindiri, Mvara and Pangisa while narrowly losing Tanganyika and Kenya to NRM’s Nusura Tiperu omar who has come second.
He now has the daunting task of fulfilling his manifesto and delivering the constituency to a full city status amidst an unfriendly environment in the ruling party dominated August House when the chief executive President Museveni openly declared on Monday that he can’t work with an enemy from the Opposition.
Wadri wins will add the number of MPs paying allegiance to the former FDC party president Mugisha Muntu by one and is expected to foster the formation of third force.
The seat fell vacant after the gruesome assassination of late Ibrahim Abiriga near his home at Kawanda in Wakiso district on June 8th this year!
