Voting has been suspended at some polling stations in Rubaga South.
This is after Electoral Commission delivered the wrong polling ballot papers in Rubaga South.
This has affected District City woman councillors. The first people who voted, ticked people they didn’t know. Voting has currently been suspended at the two polling stations.
It has happened in 3 polling stations to include, Kyengonge parking yard polling station, St cecilia polling station and at Bulwa polling station where mayoral candidate Erias Lukwago is set to cast his vote.
At Bulwa however, the right material has been delivered and polling resumed at 8am according to Joseph Lukowe, an EC presiding officer there.
At St Cecilia polling station, the first 8 people voted for people they didn’t know as wrong ballot papers were delivered and voting here is still posed.
“We noticed after voting. They then informed us that the papers are not the same that’s why we decided to stop,” says Emmanuel Mukasa a voter at St Cecilia polling station.
Kenneth Wabwire Maloba, an EC presiding officer at Kyengonge park yard polling station in Rubaga South says they have suspended the process as they wait on EC to deliver the right material.
