"Long before the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Uganda, rumours abounded of plans to postpone the elections due in 2021. Amidst these rumours, a private citizen petitioned the High Court to suspend all elections in the country for five years" @Ibnyei https://www.accord.org.za/analysis/complexities-of-democratic-elections-in-the-context-of-covid-19-response-measures/

Based on the @UgandaEc 2019/2020 Election Roadmap, we share a series of the unheld electoral activities due to covid19. #UnheldElectoralActivities
