Uganda election: Bobi Wine campaign coordinator claims police attack

January 17, 2021 9 Views

The campaign coordinator for Uganda’s opposition leader Bobi Wine claimed he was beaten and tortured by police Sunday.

Andrew Natumanya made the allegations and showed his injuries a day after Uganda’s longtime leader President Yoweri Museveni was declared winner of the country’s presidential election, which the opposition has dismissed as fraud.

His leading challenger Bobi Wine, who’s real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, has been under house arrest for several days.

Natamunya said he was abducted, beaten and electrocuted by forces loyal to the president and now his “whole entire body keeps shaking” when he tries to hold something.

President Yoweri Museveni won a sixth five-year term, extending his rule to four decades, according to official results announced Saturday.
