Uganda’s longtime President, Yoweri Museveni, has won the election in the country.
Museveni was re-elected for a sixth term amid allegations of fraud and lack of transparency in Uganda.
The country’s election commission disclosed that Museveni won 58.64% of the nearly 10 million ballots cast, while opposition leader Bobi Wine received 34.83% of the vote.
Wine had accused the electoral commission of vote rigging, an allegation the agency has dismissed.
Ugandans voted on Thursday amid a government-ordered internet shutdown which raised questions about the voting process.
