The Electoral Commission has announced the winner of the Jinja city Mayor seat after two days of vote tallying.
The Jinja city Returning officer Jennifer Kyobutungi says the breakdown of the computers at the tally centre is responsible for the delayed release of election results.
Kyobutungi has this morning declared Peter Okocha Kasolo, the NUP Flag bearer as the winner of this race that attracted ten candidates.
Kasolo polled 11, 899votes to defeat the FDC’s Frank Nabwiso who got 10, 398votes.
Kasolo is a Comedian in the popular Swengerere family who also doubles as a radio presenter at Baba FM in Jinja city.
Three other Baba fm workers have jointly been elected with Kasolo as councillors at the Jinja city council.
The trio include Silina Kyakuwaire the news editor, Damulira Twhilii the programme director and Shamim Khani a presenter.
