    Bobi Wine To Release Shocking Presidential Election Results From NUP Tally Center – Ssenyonyi Tells Al Jazeera…



    Joel Ssenyonyi (L) with Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine

    International news channel, Al Jazeera, had an exclusive interview with NUP spokesperson and elected Nakawa West Member of Parliament, Joel Ssenyonyi, about the  January 14th election and the postelection atmosphere in Uganda.

    Ssenyonyi, like his principal Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, also claimed that the whole election process was conducted in a shady manner.

    He stressed that there’s so much to know than what the public eye has actually seen.

    Ssenyonyi compared the incumbent president to a toddler who steals sugar and then wipes their mouth just to hide evidence, to end up smearing the whole face with the same.

    The outspoken NUP publicist faulted President Yoweri Museveni, whom he says illegally found a way to retain the presidential seat.

    “As you can see my network is not clear; social media has been banned here and I’m using VPN. Our communication has been made so difficult. However, Bobi Wine is strong; we’re going to keep pressing on until we achieve our victory,”  Ssenyonyi said.

    He added that; “Museveni is a 35-year-old tree that has established itself, but slowly the axe of NUP is going to bring it down. Museveni definitely wouldn’t win under normal circumstances; he knows everyone is tired of him and so he is imposing himself on us!”

    When asked about the alleged plan by the opposition to massively demonstrate on January 26th, Ssenyonyi said he doesn’t know about it but people are naturally motivated to fight against evil.

    Bobi Wine, who is the NUP president who contested and emerged second in the just concluded elections, now says Ugandans will be shocked at how fraudulent the exercise was after sharing the evidence he has collected.

    The musician cum politician revealed that he’s set to unleash all collections from the concluded presidential elections showing how fraudulent the exercise was.

    Bobi Wine expressed concern that ever since the voting exercise was conducted on the January 14th, 2021, the Electoral commission headed by Justice Simon Mugyenyi Byabakama hasn’t published any clear results from the election as demanded by the constitution.

    Bobi Wine claims that he has since the exercise been collecting evidence of electoral malpractices and DR forms to share with the general public.

    “We appreciate all those who have sent us overwhelming evidence of Electoral malpractice and DR forms from the recently concluded presidential election. You will be shocked at how fraudulent the January 14th election was when we finally share our collection soon,” Bobi Wine stated.

    The Electoral Commission, which under fire for publishing and later deleting the election results from their website, however denied having deleted any official results from the internet and rather clarified that they haven’t posted them.

    M7 Urges Ugandans To Study European History



    President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has urged Ugandans to study European history in order to gain relevant knowledge to develop the country.

    Museveni, who was represented by Vice President Jessica Alupo, made the statement at a symposium to address the role of universities in responding to Africa’s problems and development needs. The symposium was held on March 30th at Makerere University.

    Museveni told Ugandans to study European history and get exposed to the world.

    “Have seen some people saying what is the use of studying European History. It is very important to study European History cause when you know about the world, it is like a laboratory. You can know how the world is and how society evolves,” he said.

    Museveni said Africans should borrow good ideas from the Europeans and have them implemented in their own countries.

    He also expressed his dismay with colonial influence that is washing away the African culture and values. He said Africans are buying ‘acids’ to bleach themselves due to colonial influence.

    Museveni further said that University education must help Africas regain their confidence.

    “The education system or university education must put confidence back into the African people,” he said.

    The president also urged universities to incorporate integration in the scope of what they teach to students. He said universities should not teach economics without integration or political science without regional integration.

    Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, Makerere University’s vice chancellor urged the government to prioritise postgraduate studies, saying that these help countries transform faster.

    “Economies of countries are transformed much faster if you have a mass of PhD and masters’ graduates,” he said.

    According to Nawangwe, postgraduate students are able to conduct research that leads to national transformation.

    Makerere University will in the next academic year cut the number of undergraduate students to create space for postgraduate and PhD students.

    The institution has also called upon government to increase sponsorship slots for postgraduate students. This is aimed at turning Makerere University into a research led institution.
