Barely a week after Supreme Court allowed National Unity Platform (NUP) lawyers to withdraw their election petition, former NUP presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has today at his party headquarters in Kamwokya tabled his evidence claiming that the January 14th election was massively rigged.
From his evidence, Bobi indicated that he won Museveni with 54.19% but the Electoral Commission went ahead to declare otherwise.
Museveni was declared the winner of the elections with 58% of the vote while Bobi Wine had 35%. According to Bobi Wine, the results were fraudulent citing cases of soldiers allegedly stuffing ballot boxes, casting ballots for people and chasing voters away from polling stations.
The presidential hopeful said that since all institutions have failed to hand them their win, they are now back to the people of Uganda.
Bobi Wine has asked Ugandans to peacefully demonstrate against an alleged rigged Presidential election.
“Ugandans must now rise to the occasion and resist Museveni and his regime of blood. As we have been saying, we are nonviolent and lawful. Our philosophy stands firm. People power is stronger than the people in power,” he said.
Senior presidential press secretary Don Wanyama has instead termed Bobi Wine’s new move a joke.
“For this and other jokes, press *123#,” Wanyama captioned his retweet to Bobi Wine’s post before commenting under it that the threats are mere farts in the wind.
