EVERY REGISTERED VOTERS TURNED UP FOR THE JANUARY 14th POLLS
Election observers are baffled by 100 per cent voter turnout at 409 polling stations in the recently concluded January 14 presidential elections.
In total, President Yoweri Museveni polled 161,864 votes at these polling stations representing 95.8 per cent of votes cast with the rest of 10 presidential candidates sharing 4 per cent of the votes. Except at three, Museveni, who was declared the winner of the polls by the Electoral Commission, won at all theses polling stations. National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine won at one of these polling stations; Namaitsu primary school in Budada district where he polled 311 votes, representing 73% of cast votes.
These polling stations are spread across 29 districts. Isingiro district had the highest number of polling stations, 145, recording 100 per cent voter turnout. It is followed by Kiruhura with 68 polling stations and Kazo with 43 polling stations in having 100 per cent voter turnout. These three districts have more than half of polling stations that had 100 per cent voter turnout.
That not a single voter died, was sick, was away from home or decided not to votes at these polling stations, experts say raises questions that beg to be probed. Such voter turnout, isn’t normal.
