Elections in Uganda

Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 4:37pm


Thursday, millions of Ugandas will go vote in their presidential election. The incumbent, Yoweri Museveni, is a long-time US partner but he's ruled the country for more than 30 years. Nearly 70% of Ugandans are under the age of 25 — for them, Museveni has been their only president. Now though, Museveni faces a challenger. He's a musician named Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu — better known as pop singer Bobi Wine.
