The Supreme Court has written to the National Consultative Forum of Political Organisations (NFPO)) giving notice to the effect that Salama Uwamurera recently elected to represent the forum in Senate is not qualified for the seat.

The court explained that Uwamurera has no experience qualifying her to become a senator.

The development has been confirmed to IGIHE by the spokesperson of NFPO, Christine Mukabunani.

“It is true that she has been disqualified from entering the senate citing inadequate experience. The next thing on the agenda is to vote for another one. We are preparing for a meeting on Thursday this week,” she said.

Nkunsi Juvénal from Social Democratic Party (PSD) and Uwamurera Salama from Ideal Democratic Party (PDI) were elected on 19th September 2019 to take up senatorial seats representing NFPO at the senate.

Uwamurera is the executive secretary of PDI and assumed different functions in Rusizi district for 10 years.

Mukabunani said that disqualification doesn’t mean things have fallen apart because what the Supreme Court did analyzing the latter’s expertize falls under its attributions.

She further stated that all members of the forum are eligible to propose a candidate during the next elections not necessarily seeking a replacement from PDI.

Uwamurera is the executive secretary of PDI and assumed different functions in Rusizi district for 10 years.
