In Rwampara where there was anticipation of chaos, adiposity http://crownheights.info/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-panel.php the military deployed heavily which some local observers said explains the relative serenity.

A few glitches however, drugs http://dcointl.com/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php like most of the other parts of the country were experienced at some polling stations including inexperienced biometric machine operators who delayed the voting at some polling stations.

In Rukandagye, Bugamba sub county Rwampara; voter bribery was witnessed at the polling station where voters were openly handed money by agents.

Denis Katereine one of the voters told us that the distribution of money was headed by the opposition FDC and Go Forward camps.

However, in Mwizi Sub County, Chimpreports got reports that the Rwampara independent candidate Hon. Vincent Kyamadidi’s supporters were assaulted that the incumbent’s vehicle was impounded by police for reasons we were yet to establish.

At around 4:00 pm Charles Ngabirano’s of the NRM also had his Land Rover number UAW 326 F impounded from Lugazi Mbarara on grounds of carrying preticked votes.
