Uganda’s Opposition Decry Police Brutality

The campaign coordinator for Uganda’s opposition leader Bobi Wine claimed he was beaten and tortured by police.

Andrew Natumanya made the allegations and showed his injuries a day after Uganda’s longtime leader President Yoweri Museveni was declared winner of the country’s presidential election, which the opposition has dismissed as fraud.

His leading challenger Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, has been under house arrest for several days.

Natamunya said he was abducted, beaten and electrocuted by forces loyal to the president and now his “whole entire body keeps shaking” when he tries to hold something.

Wine said there had been ballot-box stuffing, intimidation, and that his party’s agents had been beaten and chased away during the election on Thursday.

However Museveni has said it was the cleanest election in the country’s history.
