Uganda's President opponent claims fraud in presidential race

777777777777777777

Long-time leader  (35 years in power) Yoweri Museveni took an early lead in Uganda’s presidential election according to preliminary results on Friday, though his main rival said there had been widespread fraud and his supporters had the right to protest.

With 29.4% of votes from Thursday’s ballot counted, Museveni had won 1,852,263 votes, or 63.9%, while main opposition candidate singer-turned-lawmaker Bobi Wine had 821,874 (28.4%).

Bobi Wine calls for political change, told a news conference he had video proof of voting fraud.

♦ On Monday Facebook has taken down pro-Museveni network in Uganda linked to the country’s ministry of information for using fake and duplicate accounts to post ahead of  election for being part of an effort to manipulate the election debate.  (source)

♦ On Tuesday the government was enforcing all social media and messaging apps shutdown.

♦ On Wednesday, the government ordered an internet blackout until further notice.
United States has announced cancellation of the diplomatic observer mission of Uganda’s election saying they were denied accreditation from the government (source).

♦ Electoral Commission Chairman assured Ugandans on Thursday after polls closed that results were arriving at the national tally centre, despite the internet blackout.“We are not using local internet to transmit our results, we are using our own system,” he said, without giving details. “Don’t worry, results will come.”

This president banned all social media and ordered internet blackout few days before election. Don't you feel there is something wrong?
