Despite Ruling For 30 Years & Banning Social Media, Uganda’s President Wins Election Again

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has won a fifth term as
president, extending his 30 years in office. The 71-year-old won 60.75% of the
vote while his nearest rival Kizza Besigye took 35%, the election commission
Mr Museveni’s supporters said his opponents had failed to
offer any chance of progress.
But Mr Besigye, main opposition, who is under house arrest,
said the results were a “sham”, calling on the international
community to reject them. “We have just witnessed what must be the most
fraudulent electoral process in Uganda,” he said in a statement.
EU observers have also criticised the poll, saying the
governing party had created an “intimidating atmosphere”. But then
this is Africa.
