Bobi Wine: We’ll remove Museveni from office in less than a year

National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has vowed to end incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s rule this year, claiming — without producing evidence — that he won the January 14 election.

According to results announced by the Uganda’s Electoral Commission (EC) on January 16, Museveni garnered 58 per cent of the total votes cast in the January 14 poll to win another five-year term.

Bobi Wine came second with 35 per cent, a huge chunk of which came from Bobi Wine’s home Buganda sub-region in Central Uganda.

Bobi Wine’s NUP won many Buganda seats, ejecting Museveni’s key ministers, including his vice president Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi.

The president termed it the ‘most cheating-free election.’ But he attributed Bobi Wine’s Buganda victory on sectarianism.

Yet even with NUP winning only 61 parliamentary seats — most of them in Buganda –Bobi Wine says he was rigged out.

“Gen Museveni did not win, we won but he declared himself a winner using a few people thereby staging a coup against the will of the people of Uganda,” claimed Bobi Wine, without proving this allegation.

Bobi Wine was addressing members of his NUP party hours after security forces left his Magere home in Wakiso District following a 10-day siege.

He also looked to the West for his redemption.

“We are glad that unlike ever before, this fraud has been rejected not only locally but even the international community. You have seen statements from the UN, the US, the European Union and elsewhere,” said Bobi.

But many election observers said the poll was free, fair, credible and peaceful.

Bobi Wine vowed to remove Museveni in 12 months.

“We want Museveni out of office in less than a year,” he said.
