The incumbent District Chairpersons of Nebbi, Koboko and Adjumani Districts in West Nile have lost their re-election bids.
Nebbi District Chairman, Esrom William Alenyo, lost to John Paschal Wapokrwa, the Paidha Town Council Chairman, by over 16,000 votes with most polling stations returning.
Ukwedah Rukkubah, who is in Arua Prison, over a debt he owes to Alenyo, is trailing behind the 3 candidates.
The Adjumani district incumbent Chairman, Nixon Owole, has lost to independent, Mark Dulu. Owole polled 38.2 percent while Dulu scooped 61 percent.
With all polling stations reporting, the Koboko district incumbent chairman Dramuke Idoru, has 41.9 percent of the votes to Abele William Dada 58.1 percent.
In Arua District, the incumbent Richard Andama Ferua of the NRM is ahead of his sole challenger, independent Dan Opima, by 16,000 votes. Although more stations had yet to report, it appeared unlikely that Opima would close the gap.
In Moyo, Peter Iku Dolo of the NRM has an edge over Gray Onama. Dollo polled 75% of the votes reported in so far against Onama's 23%.
The Yumbe District incumbent chairman, NRM's Govule Yasin Yiga, has also retained his seat after beating Aluma Etima Juma Ali.
