. Uganda: Veteran leader Yoweri Museveni declared election winner « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/Uganda’s long-time President Yoweri Museveni has been re-elected, electoral officials say, amid accusations of vote rigging by his main rival Bobi Wine.

Mr Museveni won almost 59% of the vote, with Bobi Wine trailing with about 35%, the Electoral Commission said.

Thursday’s poll may turn out to be the “most cheating free” in the history of the African nation, the president said.

Bobi Wine, a former pop star, vowed to provide evidence of fraud when internet connections were restored in Uganda.
