The State Minister for Finance in charge of Investment and Privatization has lost to Dr. Charles Ayume for the Koboko Municipality seat in the ongoing elections for the ruling NRM party flagbearers.

According to results, Anite polled 7321 votes against Ayume’s 8089 in a hotly contested election.

Speaking to Chimpreports, Anite is quoted to have conceded defeat in the party election but attributed it to malpractice.

“I have accepted(defeat) and wish everyone the best but one of my agent’s house was set ablaze. Voters were ferried from outside Koboko and could vote as many times as possible,”Anite told the website.

“I can only point out these malpractices. These elections should have postponed. If the right thing was done, I could have won.”

Prior to the election, Anite has predicted a sail-through for her after declaring that she doesn’t view it as a tough race.
