Bobi Wine challenges Museveni win in court
Ugandan opposition politician Bobi Wine has filed a legal challenge against the outcome of last month’s presidential election, which he says was rigged.
A lawyer for the musician-turned-MP’s party – the National Unity Platform – said they wanted the poll to be re-run.
Incumbent Yoweri Museveni – who came to power in 1986 – won with 58% of the votes.
Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, got 35%.
Mr Museveni’s NRM party said over the weekend it had assembled a legal team to defend his victory.
