Ugandans voted in a crucial election, but it is was another waste of time and a missed opportunity to vote out a dictator and elect a new leadership that would serve their interests, writes DW's Isaac Mugabi.
Uganda's head of state, Yoweri Museveni, was once a freedom fighter who decried long-term presidents overstaying their time. Now he has ruled for more than three decades — and wants to continue for at least five more.
Presidential candidate Bobi Wine has tweeted that he is "under siege" and that the military entered his home. This comes hours after Wine disputed partial election results showing President Yoweri Museveni in the lead.
Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, was doing a live radio interview with Kenya's Hot 96 FM station when the reported raid took place. Ugandan authorities are yet to comment.
