Major Reason Why Ugandans Should Not Panic, Even as Museveni Takes An Early Lead

Polls in Uganda opened on Thursday to allow citizens to vote, They were later closed for the second phase of the activity which is vote counting. The Electrol commission is mandated to count the vote and provide the results within 48hrs. The Ugandan presidential race between the incumbent President, Yoweri Museveni, and his rival Robert Kyangulani alias Bobi Wine might be a tough one basing on the occurrences before the date of the election section. Museveni has been the boss of Uganda for 40years now and he still wants to be reelected.

Moments ago, it has been reported that, with the current count of votes, President Museveni has taken a huge lead with 63% followed by Bobi Wine who has 28%. This has raised an eyebrow and brought panic to the people of Uganda who were anticipating change. The nation was also got surprised by how Museveni could be leading with such a huge margin.

However, this should not give them a reason to panic as Bobi wine had seen this earlier and even asked the Electoral Commission to be fair to the citizens. It is too early to call it off because the counting continues and anything can happen. Also, Wine will not contend if the incumbent retains as he had hinted the possibility of rejecting results on an election that was conducted with gross irregularities.
