The ruling NRM candidate in the Kyadondo East By-election has invited one of his challengers, Robert Kyagulanyi to perform at what called ‘my victory party.’
Sitenda Sebalu made the remarks after casting his vote on Thursday vowing to win the vote and that musician Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine will be the main act at his victory party.
“Victory is mine I invite
@HEBobiwine to perform ‘bada’ at my victory party in the evening,” Sebalu said.
Meanwhile, voting is underway in Kyadondo East by-election as the area chooses a Member of Parliament after court nullified the 2016 results.
The exercise delayed to start by some minutes at some of the polling stations visited by Uganda Radio Network despite the timely delivery of voting materials.
Some of the polling stations visited by URN include Luteete polling station, Wampeewo Day and Boarding School, Kasangati Muslim Primary School, Kasangati Cealth Centre, St Kizito primary school and Nangabo vocational Training Institute.
At Kasangati Muslim primary school, voting materials were delivered by 6:45am but the presiding officers were nowhere to receive them. URN saw a parked police vehicle with the voting materials waiting for the polling officials to arrive. As a result, voting started at 7:15am.
Although the voting materials arrived at St Kizito primary school by 5:40am, the polling assistant couldn’t set up the polling station due to lack of furniture since the classrooms were still locked.
St Kizito primary school hosts A and B polling stations. By 7:25am the polling assistants were only setting up the polling stations after securing furniture.
The voting materials at Nangabo Vocational Training Institute arrived in time, although voting didn’t start until after 7:20am because of the verification of the materials. At Gayaza COU Primary School voting started at about five minutes past 7am although the voting materials arrived in time.
