Uganda rabbi says defeat in election not kosher

Uganda’s only rabbi is contesting the outcome of Friday’s election to parliament, saying the vote was rigged.

According to results released on Saturday, Rabbi Gershom Sizomu came second with 14,872 votes in the race for MP for Bungokho North constituency in the Mbale District, trailing behind the winner, Yahaya Gudoi, from the ruling NRM party with 16,744 votes.

Sizomu told The Jerusalem Post yesterday that his party agents were beaten and chased away from more than eight polling stations in the constituency in the east of Uganda.
