In short
The Electoral Commission has disowned the pre-ticked ballot papers found hidden in the ongoing Jinja East parliamentary by-election. And now Jotham Talemwa, the EC spokesperson, says in a statement the ballot papers do not belong to the electoral body. We have verified the serial numbers of these ballot papers and found out that they are not EC ballot papers. Security has been requested to follow up on this and arrest the culprits. The good news is that each candidate was supplied with a file containing serial numbers of the ballots in this by election, he says.
