Ballot boxes, ballots arrive for Feb 23 poll
The Electoral Commission has began announcing polling stations for the Feb 23 poll but failed so far to publish the voters' register to candidates and candidates' agents. Over the weekend, the ballot materials arrived. Unconfirmed reports had a senior muslim cleric being arrested with a cache of unauthorized cargo at Entebbe International Airport. This cargo consisted allegedly of ticked ballot papers. No further information was made available by customs officials working with Uganda Revenue Authority.
