District polls: One voter turned up to vote at Bududa polling station

Bumayako polling station

Bumayako polling station

Only one person turned up on Wednesday to vote at Bumayoka Seed polling station in Bududa district to vote for district leaders.

The polling station has only 13 registered voters. It is the station with the second-lowest number of voters across the country after Kopsoboiwyo polling station in Kween district, which has only nine registered voters.

Robert Mukoya, the Bumayoka sub-county registrar said that for the whole day, polling agents patiently waited for the 13 voters, but only one person, Sophat Sokooli turned up to exercise his right to vote.

Last week, during the election of presidential and parliamentary candidates, the centre had only four voters turn up - three voted in favour of the National Resistance Movement candidate Yoweri Museveni while one voted for National Unity Platform's Robert Kyagulanyi. 

Agatha Seera, another person who is registered to vote at the same station said that she had less interest in the Local Government leaders vote since she had finished the most wanted candidates of her choice last week.

She added that she did not have transport to move from her home to the polling station, which is over 10 kilometres away, adding that last week during the presidential and parliamentary election she was offered money to cover her transport costs.

This area is the best scientific election that was ever done in the COVID19 pandemic African country.

No one is certainly going to get infected.

That is what happens when bandits over-run a country and tear it to shreds.

Many things have gone wrong in this country.
The next generation of leaders will need to reboot every system and have a lot to explain to citizens.
