KAMPALA — Security forces have raided the offices of opposition politician and pop star Bobi Wine —the National Unity Platform — and party leaders said no one is allowed to enter or leave the Kamwokya based offices.
In a Facebook, Bobi Wine said “heavily armed military and police have once again raided our party offices in Kampala”.
“No one allowed to go in or come out. Museveni after committing the most vile election fraud in history, has resorted to the most despicable forms of intimidation”.
Police and military did not immediately respond to requests for comment on raid on National Unity Platform raid.
On Sunday, Bobi Wine said he will the results of the presidential election that saw incumbent President Yoweri Museveni announced the winner, asking his supporters to refrain from violence.
Bobi Wine made the announcement on Sunday via the Twitter account belonging to his National Unity Platform (NUP) party, hours after the country’s election commission said Museveni won the vote with 58.6 percent of the vote.
According to the commission, Bobi Wine secured just 34.8 percent.
Security personnel and police were out in force patrolling the capital Kampala and an internet blackout, ordered by the government the day before the election, was still in place.
“I take this painful but nonetheless inevitable leadership decision of urging you to desist from any form of violence as we prepare to challenge the election outcome and its glaring imperfections through the courts of law for the sake of our long-term victory and for Uganda,” he said.
