Kampala residents went to the polls on Wednesday to elect the Lord Mayor and councillors.

A very low voter’s turnout was registered at polling stations across the city compared to last week’s presidential and parliamentary elections.   

Some of the voters interviewed by URN said they shunned the exercise because of disappointments from last week’s polls.

Voting started late at various polling stations due to the late delivery of voting materials. The vote counting exercise started at 4 pm but was disrupted by rains.
