Lawyer Peter Walubiri has been declared the new Uganda People’s Congress UPC party president following his triumph over 4 others in the 4th December elections.  

Walubiri has been declared by the party’s EC boss Hamza Ssewankambo with 278 votes which is 46.8%, followed by Joseph Ochieno with 271 which is 45.6%, while Dickson Opul gannered 34 which is 5.7% and  Dr. Dan Okello 10 which is 1.6%.

Ssewankambo confirmed in the statement which was released on Thursday 17, December, 2020 that 593 delegates from 98 districts had polled.  

The second oldest party in the country elections follows the three Court of Appeal justices judgement that the Hon. Jimmy Akena’s wing was illegally in office.  

Three judges led by lady justice Irene Mulyagonja, judgement faulted the incumbent Jimmy Akena’s rule as illegal thus ordering for fresh elections.

However, the Jimmy Akena’s faction that is currently housed at the party headquarters in Kampala at Uganda house maintain they are legally in office
