Governor Ojaamong Concedes Defeat in Teso South MP Race Before Final Tally of Votes

Outgoing Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong who was eyeing to capture the Teso South parliamentary race has already drafted his concession speech even before the final tallying of constituency votes after provisional results saw him trail at number three with a very wide range.

In the ongoing tallying exercise being conducted at Amukura district headquarters, incumbent member of parliament Geoffrey Omuse who is defending his seat on an independent ticket and former MP Mary Emaase of UDA are the leading candidates and one of them stands a chance of carrying the day by end of business.

In his concession speech, though indirectly, Ojaamong acknowledged the efforts mounted by his campaign team and the support he enjoyed during his two decades career in elective politics.

"To my family, friends, team, and campaigners, Thank you for the unwavering support during my reign and campaign period. I am inspired and humbled by your support.Your time, energy, resources and prayers will not go unnoticed. It was a great honor to meet and interact with many of you. You all did your best."

He also congratulated winners of various elective seats saying that they must endeavour to serve the electorate fully and dutifully.

"Congratulations to you all in your various victories in this election." Ojaamong said in his concession message.

Since Ojaamong declared interest in parliamentary seat following the elapse of his two terms as governor, he was severely criticised and his bid opposed owing to his unappealing development record while at the helm of Busia county leadership.
