Early returns point to horse race between Besigye and Museveni
Early returns are back: Incumbent Museveni and FDC candidate Kizza Besigye are in a horse race for the presidential race. Besigye is ahead in the metro and southwest parts of Buganda. Museveni is ahead in the east and north of Buganda. In the east, an early picture points to a pattern of a strong pro-Besigye vote in Mbale, Iganga and Jinja with the incumbent following closely behind. Museveni is in a sweep of Western Uganda. Parliamentary returns are to follow in the next 3 hours.
