EC extends registration update days

By Robert Segawa

The electoral commission has provided a five days extension for the national update of the voters register from the 11th of December to 16th of December.

The exercise which kicked off in 21st of November country wide was scheduled to end tomorrow 11th December 2019.

Addressing journalists this afternoon the commission chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama says the extension was effected due to the high number of applicants and outcry from various stake holders.

He further cautioned the public not to give money to the officials working in the voters register update exercise because it’s free of charge.

Byabakama adds that if possible they are to ask police to intervene.
