Joyce Bagala is the duly elected Woman MP for Mityana, court of Appeal says

Court of Appeal has upheld the victory of National Unity Platform (NUP)’s Joyce Bagala as the validly elected Woman Member of Parliament for Mityana District.

Three Justices of the appellate court led by Geofrey Kiryabwire set aside the Mubende High Court decision that had nullified Bagala's victory on grounds that there was noncompliance with the electoral laws.

Ms Bagala contended that the said election was free and fair, and that if there was any non-compliance it didn't warrant cancellation of the result, especially when there's no evidence that the people who allegedly bribed voters were her agents.

She then asked the Court of Appeal to set aside the lower court’s decision and uphold her victory.
The appellate court ordered both parties to bear costs for the suit.
