President Yoweri Museveni polled 706 votes in his home town Rushere leaving FDC’s Kizza Besigye to pick only 2 votes.

The total number of registered voters in Rushere is 437 voters.

The electoral commission is yet to explain where the surplus of 271 votes came from.


EC boss, Eng Badru Kiggundu, has just released his third round of provisional results at Namboole stadium, the main tallying centre.

Kiggundu says they have so far received results from 83 out of the 112 districts in Uganda.

President Museveni is leading in Apac, Bundibugyo, Kabarole, Kotido, Kisoro, Mbarara, Nebbi, Katakwi and Kiruhura districts.

Besigye is leading in Kampala, Lira, Luweero, Mbale, Pader, Mukono, Soroti, Tororo, Kitgum and Jinja districts.

The third round of provisional results received from 10,246 polling stations show that Museveni is still leading with 62.03% followed by Besigye with 33.4%.

The results shocked representatives of other presidential candidates at the tallying centre as well as journalists.

The journalists have been wondering where the percentages are coming from since the tallying computers are “seated idle” with no one on them.

“Kiggundu just comes with a written document reading out results and percentages,” a journalist told us.

The dissatisfied representatives of presidential candidates have stormed out of Namboole in protest.

Kiggundu has meanwhile warned against announcing of results from parallel tally centres.

“Only the EC has that mandate,” Kiggundu said, warning media not to dare publicise unofficial results.
