Butebo district has been plunged into celebrations as the NRM candidate Samuel Keddi takes the lead in the contest for the new district LC V chairman seat.

Provisional results from 20 out of the 83 polling stations give Keddi lead against his only rival, James Okurut.

The two candidates contested in the NRM primaries which Keddi won. They are the only ones in the race following the failure by the opposition to have a candidate.

Keddi’s supporters have already taken to the streets singing and dancing. Some have marched to his home as other are camped at the tally centre at the district headquarters.
