Losing candidate for FDD in Munali Constituency in the 2016 August elections Antonio Mwanza says the move by former area Parliamentary NKandu Luo is unwise as she risks embarrassing herself in the Constitutional Court.
Mr Mwanza said the reasons for the nullifying are water tight as the evidence is solid and indisputable.
“Nkandu Luo has decided to appeal against the nullification of her election as Member of Parliament for Munali. That’s her constitutional right but should the Constitutional Court uphold the ruling of the High Court then she will be banned from re-contesting the seat in the by-election in accordance with Article 72 of the Republican Constitution.
“The grounds that the High Court has based its decision are solid and indisputable. And Nkandu Luo herself knows from her heart of hearts that she did not win those elections. Deep down in her heart she knows that she was the most unpopular candidate in Munali. She knows that.
“And to take the matter to the Constitutional Court and risk a disqualification all together is very unwise. The wise thing to do is to accept the ruling of the High Court and allow herself a second chance by taking part in the by election than risk a total disqualification, should the Constitutional Court uphold the High Court’s ruling. Madam Nkandu Luo, KAKO NI KALI MUMANJA,” he said.
