However, hours before announcing the winners, chaos erupted in Kabale municipal stadium after the Kabale District NRM Party Registrar, Maurice Keitaba and his NRM officials, declined to display the register of those who were supposed to vote where voting process on side of Barrack didn’t take place.
Barrack accused Bagamuhunda of using fake voters and duplicate registers of youths who are not even in NRM structures.
He requested the voting process to be halted until the matter is settled and also asked the register to be displayed so voters can witness their names.
