Ugandan opposition presidential candidate, Bobi Wine has taken to Twitter to raise an alarm over a military siege at his home as the country waits for results following Thursday’s election.
The singer turned-politician, who is hoping to unseat President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power since 1986, had earlier tweeted about ‘widespread fraud and violence experienced across the country’ during the election.
In his tweets on Friday, January 15, he wrote: ‘None of these military intruders is talking to us. We are in serious trouble. We are under siege.’
None of these military intruders is talking to us. We are in serious trouble. We are under seige.
