Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has won a sixth term as president, extending his 35 years in office. The 76-year-old won 58.6.% of the vote while his nearest rival Robert Kyagulanyi, known by his stage name Bobi Wine, took 34.8%, the election commission said.
Ugandan President Museveni claims to be winning Thursday's election, but he's mainly doing a good job of discrediting the election by sending soldiers to surround the home of his principal opponent, @Bobiwine2 , much as they impeded Wine's campaign.
Conveniently citing the coronavirus, the Ugandan government suspends campaigning for January elections in the capital and 10 populous districts where, just coincidently, of course, President Museveni's main opponent, @Bobiwine2 , is highly popular.
Only two days before elections, Ugandan soldiers raided the home of President Museveni's main electoral challenger, @Bobiwine2 and arrested his security guards. Why? Facing threats, Wine already must campaign with a helmet and bulletproof vest.
Ugandan police shot a TV cameraman, now in critical condition, as they dispersed supporters of President Museveni's main challenger in next month's election, @Bobiwine2 . It's as if the authorities don't want journalists covering their repression.
