The Human Rights Activist, Musician, and Presidential candidate of the major opposition party in Uganda, Bobi Wine has declared a massive protest in Uganda over the recent elections which was widely believed to have been rigged by the incumbent dictator, President Yoweri Museveni.
“ANNOUNCEMENT OF PEACEFUL PROTESTS Fellow Ugandans, As we promised when we withdrew the Election Petition from the Supreme Court, we are bringing this matter to the People of Uganda! As always, the regime is desperately trying to claim that we are planning violent protests. NO. We are calling upon all of you citizens of goodwill to demonstrate peacefully and unarmed, a right guaranteed by Article 29 of the Constitution. He wrote on his Facebook page.

“We are demonstrating with four demands:
- “We won the January 14th election. Our computation from the DR forms shows that we won with 54.19%, despite the massive ballot stuffing which Gen. Museveni engaged in. This morning we have given details of our election results, and thereafter we’ll release the DR forms on our website. We demand that Gen. Museveni returns the victory of the people of Uganda. If he claims, even remotely that he won this election, we demand that there is an INDEPENDENT AUDIT of the election.
- “We are demanding that Gen. Museveni and his regime of shame immediately stop abducting the people of Uganda, which they continue to do on a daily basis.
- ‘We are demanding that Gen. Museveni and his security operatives #BringBackOurPeople who were abducted. We are demanding that Gen. Museveni immediately releases all political prisoners dead or alive; including those who are in prisons and those who are in torture chambers across the country.
- “We are demanding that Gen. Museveni immediately stops the trial of civilians in the General Court Martial and other military courts. #PeoplePowerOurPower Pass on the message!”. Bobi Wine declared.
