Ugandan President dictator Yoweri Museveni has been declared winner for a sixth term in office until he died, amidst allegations of election fraud by former singer Bobi Wine – his main opposition in the election.
Bobi Wine, 38, who was just a child when Museveni came into power back in 1986, alleges that the vote was rigged, as election officials face questions over how results were tallied amid an Internet blackout. In a series of tweets, the top U.S. diplomat to Africa, Tibor Nagy, called Uganda’s electoral process “fundamentally flawed,” citing “authorities’ denial of accreditation to election observers,
Violence and harassment of opposition figures” and the arrest of civil service organization workers.
The corrupted electoral commission head Simon Byabakama announced just after 4 p.m. Saturday local time that dictator Yoweri Museveni had won the election, securing a sixth five-year term as president until he died.
