Vote counting in the Uganda vice-president’s Bukoto county central constituency has been stopped after results from two polling stations were disputed.

Vice-President Edward Ssekandi was trailing in the preliminary results that had been tallied before counting stopped.

Mr Ssekandi has been the Bukoto central MP for 26 years.

His challengers are Richard Ssebamala, Majellan Kazibwe, Evelyn Namaganda, Fredrick Ddembe Luswata and Godfrey Sseremba Mayanja.
