UGANDA: BOBI WINE SAYS ELECTION MARRED BY ‘FRAUD, VIOLENCE’

Written by on January 15, 2021

BOBI WINE, THE MAIN CHALLENGER OF INCUMBENT UGANDAN PRESIDENT YOWERI MUSEVENI IN THE ELECTION, SAID EARLY ON FRIDAY THAT THURSDAY’S VOTE HAD SEEN “WIDESPREAD FRAUD AND VIOLENCE” BUT THE OPPOSITION LEADER REMAINED POSITIVE AS BALLOTS ARE BEING COUNTED UNDER AN INTERNET BLACKOUT.

DESPITE THE WIDESPREAD FRAUD AND VIOLENCE EXPERIENCED ACROSS THE COUNTRY EARLIER TODAY, THE PICTURE STILL LOOKS GOOD. THANK YOU UGANDA FOR TURNING UP AND VOTING IN RECORD NUMBERS,” WINE TWEETED SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT, MANAGING TO BYPASS THE BLOCKAGE.

THE 38-YEAR-OLD FORMER POP STAR-TURNED-LEGISLATOR DID NOT GIVE DETAILS ABOUT HIS ACCUSATIONS, WHICH CONTRADICTED THE GOVERNMENT’S ACCOUNT THAT THURSDAY’S VOTE HAD BEEN PEACEFUL WITH NO EXTENSIVE CASES OF VIOLENCE REPORTED.
