1 Members of Parliament, Eddie Kwizera and Derrick Orone, who participated in a by-election on August 11, 2022, have been sworn in.
4 The by-election drew three candidates, but two of the candidates who were nominated to run announced that they had withdrawn from the race.
5 The Court of Appeal ruled that Orone was irregularly elected in 2021 following a petition by his rival, Taligola Bantalib.
6 On the other hand, NRM‘s Eddie Kwizera Wa-Gahungu went through the by-elections and bounced back in parliament after defeating his main rival, Asgario Turyagyenda, in the Bukimbiri County by-elections.
7 In June 2022, the Court of Appeal overturned the election of Eddie Kwizera Wa-Gahungu and declared the Bukimbiri County Parliamentary seat vacant following an application by James Owebeyi that the 2021 election was rigged.
8 Vice President Tayebwa welcomed the legislators and asked them to be cordial and willing to work with everyone.
9 “Learn to let go of the past; bury the hatchets and prepare to work together even with those who may have led to your by-elections,” he added.
