Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Elections Commission boss Justice Simon Byabakama has declared Yoweri Museveni Turuhagurwa Kaguta as the winner of the 2020 Uganda Presidential Elections.
At the 10th and final reading of the cumulative results declarations, Justice Byabakama noted the ‘resilience and determination’ of the people of Uganda who turned up to elect their leaders in the Parliamentary and Presidential elections even as the COVID-19 pandemic continued to be a threat to public health.
The opposition leader, who has been arrested multiple times during the campaigning, earlier said to reporters that the presidential election was marred by ‘fraud and violence’ without providing any evidence.
Bobi Wine said he would detail election irregularities by the ruling party once the internet was restored. The internet remained down for days as vote counting continued.
Only 57% of the registered 18.3 million voters turned up, which shows the election, marred by campaign violence before polling day, had a lower than expected turn out.
While the low turn out seems to have favoured the incumbent, it exposed 25 ministers, including Vice President Edward Ssekandi.
The biggest defeat of ministers was in Buganda where Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) swept many seats. Ministers kicked out include VP Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi Beti Kamya, Judith Nabakooba, Amelia Kyambadde, Ruth Nankabirwa, Ssempijja, Dr Muyingo, Seninde, Nakiwala and Kibule.
