Bobi Wine Alleges Fraud As Museveni Takes Early Lead

Ugandan musician-turn-politician Bobi Wine, has alleged widespread voter fraud after early results from Thursday polls were released on Friday.

Wine, who has relentlessly galvanised young Ugandans with calls for political change, told a news conference he had video proof of voting fraud. “We are winning,” he said.

“We are putting every legal, every constitutional and every non-violent option on the table,” Wine said.

“I will be happy to share the videos of all the fraud and irregularities as soon as the internet is restored.”

Wine’s allegation is coming just after the long-time leader, Yoweri Museveni, took an early lead in Uganda’s presidential election according to preliminary results on Friday.

With 29.4% of votes from Thursday’s ballot counted, Museveni had won 1,852,263 votes, or 63.9%, while main opposition candidate Bobi Wine had 821,874 (28.4%), the electoral commission said just after 11 am.

The election campaign was marred by deadly crackdowns by security forces on opposition candidates and their supporters. Also The internet and social media apps were still shut as at Friday to maintain calm as vote counting continues
