Ugandan opposition leader says vote will not be free or fair | Reuters

KAMPALA The leading challenger to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said on Tuesday he had no confidence that elections this week would be free or fair, as all the major candidates held huge rallies in the capital Kampala to mark the end of the campaign. Kizza Besigye, a long-time opposition leader who has lost three previous elections, told reporters the "overwhelming enthusiasm" for change after three decades of Museveni rule "has caused panic in the no-change camp". "That is why, yesterday, elements of the Uganda police and other security agencies unleashed violence on our supporters and sabotaged our campaign in Kampala," he said. #Business #Middle East #markets #Africa #Argentina #Latin America #Uganda
