Serere By-elections: Okabe's Son Floors Museveni

Late Patrick Okabe’s Son Floors Museveni And Bobi Wine’s Might To Win Serere By-elections

Omoding Emmanuel the son to the late Hon Patrick has won the Serere County by-elections after flooring the NRM’s Philip Oucor and ANT’s Alice Alaso.

The returning officer of Serere Electoral District, Cheptegei Nangendo Sylvia declared Omoding the winner amidst heavy jubilations.

Omoding who was on an Independent ticket racked up 15,638 votes. He was followed by his closest competitor, NRM’s Philip Oucor who got 13,206 votes.

ANT’s Alice Alaso came in third with a distant 3,335 votes. Onguruco Emmanuel an Independent had 2,523 votes whereas Eratu Emmanuel of FDC had 1,252 votes. The total number of votes cast were 35,954 votes.

“The Returning Officer, Serere Electoral District, Cheptegei Nangendo Sylvia has declared Omoding Emmanuel who has obtained the largest number of votes to be the elected candidate for Serere County Constituency, Serere District.”

The late Okabe belonged to the NRM party, however, during the last general elections, he ran as an independent.

His  son was overlooked in this by-elections unlike the case of Omoro when the party supported Andrew Ojok Oulanyah who eventually won the election.

Omoding meanwhile wrestled off strong competition from two of his opponents in Oucor and Alaso. Oucor saw President Museveni head to Serere to campaign for him.

Alaso, a former MP on the other hand had the backing and support of NUP and Bobi Wine. The NUP leader alongside ANT President Mugisha Muntu campaigned for her.

But at the end of the day, the people chose Omoding to fill his late father’s shoes.
