The National Resistance Movement- NRM party electoral officials and village chairpersons in Makindye West have accused candidates of failing to mobilize their voters to participate in the NRM primaries. 

By 11 am, most of the polling stations visited by URN such as Luvuuma, St Paul, Katwe two, Katabira zones and others had only the presiding officers and candidates agents, while at other polling stations there were no candidates’ agents.

Abdul Swamadu Baker the presiding officer of St-Paul Primary school said the candidates especially those aspiring for Lord Mayor have not done what is expected of them. He says that there are 1,200 registered voters at the polling station, but only three had voted by 11 am.

//Cue in” I’ve already organized my station...

Cue out: “…supposed to come and vote//

Luganda

//'Cue in”Twatuuse dda naye abalonzi…....

Cue out: ..…abakulu mu NRM mugitereeze”''

Isma Ssenabulya the presiding officer of Katabira zone said that his polling station has over 1,000 voters registered, but only 350 voted in last week’s primaries. He is worried that the trend will continue during today’s elections.

//Cue in: “This time it may be less .....

Cue out: “…have been overwhelming//

Luganda

//Cue in: “Ekireetera abantu obuta-Turninga up .....

Cue out: ..…balonzi naye bakola buwoteeri.//

Hassan Serwanda, the Chairperson of Katabira Zone says candidates have failed to work with NRM party leaders to mobilize their supporters to vote. 

//Cue in”Wano Sirowoozaayo zone .....

Cue out: ..…atya ku ssaawa eyenkomerero”''
