Uganda’s long-time President Yoweri Museveni has been re-elected, electoral officials say, amid accusations of vote fraud by his main rival Bobi Wine. Mr Museveni won almost 59% of the vote, with Bobi Wine trailing with about 35%, the Electoral Commission said. Thursday’s poll may turn out to be the “most cheating-free” in the history of the African nation, the president said. Bobi Wine, a former pop star, vowed to provide evidence of vote-rigging when internet connections were restored. The government shut down the internet ahead of voting day, a move condemned by election monitors.
