1 Mins read

Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni has taken a significant early lead in the presidential race, according to preliminary results released by the electoral commission on Friday morning.

Mr Museveni has garnered 1,536,205 votes (65.02%), while his main rival Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, has 647,146 votes (27.39%) from 8,310 polling stations.

The country has a total of 34,684 polling stations.

Uganda’s government has described the election as peaceful.

Ugandan opposition candidate Bobi Wine has rejected the results declared so far and calls himself the president-elect, despite the electoral body saying not all votes have yet been counted.

Bobi Wine alleges Thursday’s polls saw the worst vote-rigging in Uganda’s history, but did not provide any evidence to back up his claims.

He declared the struggle is just beginning.

Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, says he’ll address the press again in a few hours on the way forward.

The military have surrounded Bobi Wine’s house.
