According to Ssekitoleko’s lawyer Hon Medard Ssegona,this Boda Boda rider even failed to mention the polling station he voted from an indication he was a man who was shipped from afar area to come and accuse Hon Ssekitoleko of bribery.

Hon Ssekitoleko has asked Minister Muyingo to stop playing cat games and accept the defeat because its the people of Bamunanika who decided to end his 10-year tenure as MP.

“In 2011, the people of Bamunanika voted for him, same for 2016. This time they decided not to because they were tired of him.

I advise him to stop playing such wired games and accept the fact that I defeated him because of the will of the people. If he feels he is man enough, let him wait for 2026.” Ssekitoleko said
