Journalists are reporting delays in the delivery of voting materials in some polling stations in Uganda.
Those who tweeted from various polling stations said materials were yet to be delivered by 07:00 local time when polls were supposed to open.
The government has ordered a block on all social media. But some journalists have managed to get round the ban.
Here are some tweets from journalists on the Thursday delay:
Voting should have started an hour ago in Jinja but at this polling center near the center of town, polling materials are yet to arrive. One young women, we spoke said, it doesn’t matter. She will stay as long as it takes to cast her vote. #UgandaDecides2021 pic.twitter.com/L11kQbgHrK
