Cue out...we have had candidates.//

However, Nathan Byanyima the first runner up in the poll has declined to concede defeat. His supporters claim the exercise was marred by irregularities.

Byanyima says there was direct ballot stuffing at Kashasha C.O.U and Kabwera polling stations in Rushasha Sub County while his supporters in Mbare Sub County were disenfranchised.

But E.C Vice chairperson Joseph Biribonwa who oversaw the exercise says all voters freely participated in the update of the voters register during the display period.

Electoral monitors from the Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda, CEDU hailed the electoral commission for conducting a free and fair election in Bukanga.  Umaru Kashaka was the CEDU head of delegation.
