An air of uncertainty hangs in Fort Portal Municipality following the delays in the delivery of voting materials for the NRM Primary elections. None of the 93 polling stations in Fort-Portal has recieved the voting materials. Voter turn up remained high, but many have resigned to a wait and see attitude. Some voters have gathered in small groups debating whether or not the voting will take place today. Voters like David Kijumba, a resident of Maguru South Division, stood resigned wondering whether it was still worth waiting for the voting materials. Alex Kiiza, the NRM returming officer for Nyaburara A village, in South division, was equally puzzled by the twist of events. He explians that voting materials were expeceted at the polling stations at 7:00a.m and then voting would begin at 8:00a.m. Kiiza says that he has tried in vain to contact the NRM district officials over the delay. //Cue in: "these people are here..." Cue out: "...we don't know what is taking place."// Godfrey Nyakahuma, the Kabarole district NRM Chairman and Sande Tibamwenda, the NRM district returning officer could not be reached for a comment, because their phones were switched off.
