Iringa. Iringa constituency polling clerk, Mr Ahmed Sawa has postponed the announcement of parliamentary election results until tomorrow after two ballot boxes went missing at Ipogolo C polling station.

Mr Sawa said the results will be announced tomorrow after re-election at the station.

“Two ballot boxes have disappeared while we were tallying. “We cannot announce results today because we are supposed to follow NEC’s principles,” he said.

He added that apart from the fact that Chadema candidate, Reverend Peter Msigwa was leading, the results would not be released until tomorrow due to the said problems.
