LIVE: Uganda Presidential, MP Election Results

Museveni, Mbabazi and Besigye are the leading presidential candidates in Uganda

The situation in most parts of Kampala has been calm with no business but rather empty streets; as people flocked the polling stations to cast their vote.

However, page http://cigc.unimap.edu.my/components/com_k2/views/itemlist/tmpl/user_item.php at majority of polling stations, http://centroilponte.com/wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-event-calendar/lib/http/response/helper.php voting materials hadn’t been delivered by the official time of 7am despite the big turn up of voters.

The presiding officer who sought anonymity said; “We are being told that materials are still being distributed and this will be the last place to supply.”

A few metres from this centre, at ‘Omuti gwe ddembe’ polling station in Kawempe Division (Makerere 2 parish, the situation wasn’t different and  by 7: 45am there was no sign voting would take place.

According to Mr. Denis Kasanga, a boda boda cyclist, the only option he had was leaving the polling station back to work but was optimistic he would return and be able to cast his vote.

“It’s 7am but there’s no activity happening at my polling station yet the Electoral Commission has motorcycles and vehicles to ease transportation. They might be intending to rig the elections,” said the bitter Kasanga.

“I got here early enough to commence the exercise but up to now we haven’t received any materials. The problem is, we don’t have telephone contacts of those supposed to deliver them,” said the Presiding officer at Mary Stuart polling centre inside Makerere University.

For Martin Emikuny, it was saddening and absurd for delays in voting which he said is a sign there is no leveled ground and the election will not be free and fair.

“If this is  happening in Kampala, how about the rural areas where roads are in a sorry  state? This is going to affect voter turn up,” he added.

According to Kampala Central Member of Parliament and aspirant Muhammad Nsereko, it was unfair for the election body to delay delivery of voting materials yet many people had turned up in big numbers to cast their votes.

“It is absurd that voters who turned up early enough in big numbers have spent many hours without materials to use but keeping them under the scorching sunshine,” MP Nsereko told Chimreports.

Meanwhile the head of the Commonwealth observer mission and former Nigeria president Olusegun Obasanjo has also expressed concern over delayed voting in some parts of the city he has visited.

Speaking to journalists at Kakajjo 2 polling station at Old Kampala, Obasanjo said the Electoral Commission should extend the voting time considering the irregularities in the voting exercise.

“It would be fair if the Electoral Commission extended voting time to ensure everyone votes but I am satisfied officials are working around the clock to rectify this problem. I will have to move around the different polling stations to find out what really happened,” Obasanjo said.

However, the Electoral Commission has since agreed to extend voting time up to 7 pm at polling stations where voting started late due to delay in delivery of polling materials  in Kampala and Wakiso districts.
