When three sheep and one wolf fight and had the wolf for supper, things are always left unexplained.

Here Chairperson NRM Amuru district Juma Labongo has refused the results of the Amuru Woman MP by election, claiming it was unfair.
He is demanding that the Electoral Commission should nullify the results and carry out another by election that is transparent.
The Bye election saw Lucy Akello, Inter-Party Coalition candidate garner 7,420 votes, beating her closest NRM rival Jane Frances Amongin Okilli, who got 6701 votes of the total votes cast.

Labongo said there was no way NRM could lose out in the by election because they had great support from the locals. He argued that the there was foul play by the electoral commission, as results from one of the polling stations in Otong primary school in Gaya Parish Pabbo Sub-county, were missing.

Labongo added that names of people in the registry book in most areas were also missing.

While announcing the winner of the Amuru Woman MP last night at the Electoral Commission’s head Office in Amuru district, Sam Olet, the registrar Electoral Commission Amuru noted that the exercise was free and fair with no malpractice registered.

Badru Kigundu, the Chairman Electoral Commission, said that he did not witness any form of violence.
Efforts to get comments from the FDC Chairperson Michael Lakony were futile as his known phone numbers were off.
