Court of Appeal nullifies James Akena’s election as UPC party president and orders the party to hold fresh elections and nominate new flag bearers . Justices Elizabeth Musoke , Christopher Madrama and Irene Mulyagonja have further warned the party that its credibility will continue to be in doubt if its leadership is not in line with provisions of the constitution. This is after the judges also established that Akena has been occupying the UPC party presidential office illegally.
Mean while a month ago, UPC convened a delegates conference in James Akena was declared party president and also communicated the party’s position of not fronting a presidential candidate in the forth coming 2021 general elections. However in light of today’s court decision, Akena is not UPC president and also one of the party’s members Dan Okello has come forward to declare his ambitions to contest for the highest office in the land . Okello says he has already traversed the country and supplied his manifesto to Several Ugandans who have since given him hope.
