Voter turnout remains below average with less than an hour to end of voting.

The race has attracted five candidates: National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate Rehemah Watongola, opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) flag bearer Proscovia Salaamu Musumba; and independent candidates Proscovia Naikoba Kanakutanda, Samuel Walugyo and Mike Kiboome. But political pundits say the race is tight between Musumba and Watongola.

Earlier, seven people were arrested in connection with bribery allegations and chaos ensued between Musumba and Watongola’s supporters.
