Florence Rembo, a polling assistant at the station, confirmed the delayed delivery of polling material. She told URN on phone from Jinja, that she was still trying to get in touch with her superiors to establish why the materials have delayed. 

Rembo appealed to be patient, saying there is nothing they can do without the voting materials. Isaac Grileba, a voter at the polling station, told URN that there is no indication that polling would take place. 

He said the late delivery of the voting materials is a huge disappointment to many voters. The Jinja District Electoral Commission Registrar has not yet not yet commented about the delayed delivery of polling materials as his known phone number was switched off.
