ACCORDING to the latest election results update from Uganda’s Electoral Commission (EC) puts incumbent President in a safe and comfortable lead over his challengers:
YOWERI Museveni – 1,536,205
ROBERT Kyagulani – 647,146
Meanwhile Ugandan presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi popularly referred to as Bobi Wine has decried fraud and violence in the country’s election as vote counting continues. In a tweet on his official handle on Thursday, January 14, evening, the National Unity Platform leader thanked his fellow citizens for turning up in large numbers to cast their votes but expressed his doubt in the process.
“Hello Uganda! Despite the wide spread 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. The challenge now is for Mr. Byabakama and the EC to declare the will of the people,” he said.
The 38-year-old while speaking to Zibani Zambia assured his supporters of nothing but a win claiming he had the numbers to oust long serving President Yoweri Museveni from power.
“The results the Electoral Commission (EC) boss Simon Byabakama puts out are his business. We are in this to win. We have reached to our supporters and everybody was scared as they thought I won’t cast my vote but we are here. We have an effort to vote and observe this election and we will know the answer,” Wine affirmed.
