Four people have been nominated by Jinja District returning officer Rogers Sserunjongi to contest in the Jinja East parliamentary by-election.

The nominated candidate included the two main contenders, Nathan Igeme Nabeta, the NRM candidate and the Forum for Democratic Change candidate Paul Mwiru.

The Jinja East seat fell vacant after court nullified Nabeta’s victory after finding him guilty of participating in election malpractice.
