Mr Kajwengye opposed the results and petitioned the party leadership claiming massive fraud and irregularities which forced the president to order for fresh elections in 84 villages where the said malpractices were manifested.

However, on October 5, Mr Kajwengye announced that he had opted out of the race saying NRM electoral commission had organized elections in only 25 villages instead of 84 villages as directed.
