Uganda: 20,000 voters on voters roll unaccounted for

[AEP] Polling station voter counts released by the Electoral Commission (EC) shows that some 20,000 voters on the voters register are unaccounted for barely 9 days to the general elections.

According to the EC, that notwithstanding, everything is place for to guarantee free, fair and credible elections come February 18. Some 15,297,197 voters (8,027,803 Female and 7,249,394 Male voters) are eligible to cast their ballot in the poll. However, figures from the document for male and females combined falls short of the 20, 000 (the ghost names or voters) which were unaccounted for.

Incumbent President Yoweri Museveni faces the biggest test ever in his 30 year rule as he comes up against 7 other candidates on February 18.
