#UgandaDecides: Museveni In Massive Early Lead, Bobi Wine Alleges Fraud

By  | 

It appears incumbent Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s sixth term bid is closer to reality, as results from the Electoral Commission trickle in while counting of votes continue.

Museveni is currently in an early lead with 61.31% of the votes followed by Bobi Wine with 27.9% of the total votes counted, according to the first results of the election, on Friday.

The 76-year-old, who is one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders, has never lost an election and observers expect this time around will be no different.

Meanwhile opposition leader, Robert Kyagulanyi, also called Bobi Wine, has described the election as characterised by “widespread fraud and violence” on his official Twitter account.

The 38-year-old former popstar is a member of Parliament representing Kyadondo County East constituency, and considered Museveni’s main contender.
