Hon. Mukasa with a supporter in Lubaga
BY FERISTA TENDO
FULL LIST of newly elected Members of the 11th Parliament of Uganda who will swear-in starting May 17th 2021 to May 20th 2021 is out!
Your own, Aloysius Mukasa Talton Gold, MP elect Rubaga South Constituency will be sworn in on May 19th 2021 and we are reliably informed, this successful businessman is planning to throw a mega party for his voters a few days after swearing-in, to salute them for electing him massively.
Meanwhile, Democratic Party’s Eugenia Nassolo who badly lost to Hon. Mukasa during the January 14th2021 elections has been linked to President Museveni’s son Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba in a bid to help her in an election petition she filed against the opposition NUP elected Lubaga South legislator.
“Ms. Nassolo is ready to work with NRM and will sign any deal provided Hon. Mukasa victory can be twisted and he is kicked out of Parliament. She is comfortable working with NRM than NUP.” Said a source from Nassolo’s camp who attended the meeting.
Sources privy to this news Website has revealed to us how a frustrated Nassolo is looking for a way to President Museveni or his son Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba in a swap deal to tame Hon. Mukasa as her election petition faces a hard rock.
Sources say, Nassolo has no problem with going to bed with NRM provided the ruling Party finds a way of influencing her petition and court throws out Hon. Aloysius Mukasa.
We are told, this DP woman is troubled after Mukasa she was trounced in round one when her application to serve him through a substituted service was dust binned by High court judge Esther Nambayo.

In Election Petition no. 07 of 2021 dated March 19th 2021, through her lawyers of Alaka & Co. Advocates, Nassolo is seeking the election of Hon. Mukasa Aloysius Talton Gold be nullified.
She is accusing him of bribing voters and for not being an eligible voter.
Hon. Mukasa, however, through his lawyers of M/s Semuyaba, Iga & co. Advocates asked court to dismiss Nassolo’s petition with costs saying it has no merit and is based on political mind games.
Out of 14 candidates who contested for Rubaga South MP seat on January 14th 2021, Aloysius Mukasa emerged the overall winner with 49,501 (Forty Nine thousand, five hundred one) votes and Nassolo came second with 12,893 (Twelve thousand, Eight Hundred ninety three) votes only.
In a four page response dated March 29th 2021 to Nassolo’s petition, Hon. Mukasa’s lawyers have told court that, “The 1stRespondent (Aloysius Mukasa) shall aver and contend, the Petitioners petition is frivolous, vexatious and without merit and is based on political mind games and therefore the Petitioner’s prayers have no merit and cannot be granted by this court and A PRELIMINARY POINT OF LAW SHALL BE RAISED THAT THE PETITION IS INCOMPETENT AND DOES NOT RAISE ANY CAUSE OF ACTION AND IS STATUTE BARRED.”
“The Petitioner shall be put to strict proof thereof.” Vowed Mukasa’s lawyers.
The case has not been allocated a judge and this is not expected this soon.
We are told, Mukasa’s camp is very ready for the hearing and now advises Nassolo to mind about how to meet Mukasa’s costs because she has zero chance to win.
Asked about information moving around that Nassolo is seeking for NRM’s hand of help to win her petition, Mukasa’s camp has told us that, “She is just logging a dead horse. Let her just look for a job in NRM. Rubaga South constituency spoke loudly and no one will ever change their choice. Tell her to stop day dreaming.”
