There was excitement and glamour on Tuesday as winners of the long awaited Local Council polls in various parts of the country burst into celebration after results were announced.
Ugandans braved long queues to vote for candidates of their choice in an election last held in 2001.
Unlike the recent polls which were by secret ballot, this time round voters had to lineup behind candidates of their choice.
After lining up to vote, many burst into cheers and celebration, some carried the winners shoulder high after vote counting and declaration of results.

At Kyampungu polling station in Rugyeyo sub county, Kanungu District, residents voted by show of hands, as opposed to the lining up behind candidates.
