Ugandan Presidential elections: Bobi Wine rejects recent result, declares himself elected President


By Abba Gwale

Ugandan Presidential candidate, Bobi Wine rejected the recently released result of the country’s presidential elections and declares himself elected President even though the electoral board is still counting the votes.

The opposition candidate said Thursday’s elections was one of the worst elections in the history of Uganda.

He added that he is fighting for the people’s rights and there is no going back.

A former singer, Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, said he would call a press conference to declare his stand about the recent happenings in the country.

Recent result shows that the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni is in pole position with 60% over Bobi Wine.

Museveni has been in power since 1986 and he’s seeking a sixth term against a stiff challenge from Bobi Wine.

More than 18 million people have registered to take part in the polls. A candidate must win more than 50 percent to avoid a runoff vote.
