Uganda’s longtime leader, Yoweri Museveni, has been declared the winner of a record sixth cycle amid internet power outages and rigging claims.
“Uganda’s election campaigns have been marred by harassment of opposition candidates, campaign staff and supporters, repression of media and civil society organizations, and a nationwide internet shutdown before, during and after the vote,” the post said.
Speaking through one of his co-workers, Wine said he ran out of food and Brown was unable to leave him alone.
Wine rejects Saturday’s election results, saying it has evidence of fraud and intimidation. He did not provide details of the alleged evidence, saying his team would share it when restoring lines of communication.
“The fact that Natalie doubts that the election will not be‘ credible ’simply because the U.S. embassy voluntarily withdrew from the observation is pointless shooting,” she said in her piece, which she posted on her Twitter page.
“From now on, Natalie should be the last person to give unqualified lectures on election integrity.”
The U.S. has decided not to hold the election because the election commission has decided to reject more than three-quarters of its accreditation applications, Brown said in a statement Wednesday, the day before the election.
The embassy called on the Museveni government to respect the “human rights and fundamental freedoms” of its citizens and to “respect international human rights standards.”
