It’s treason to protest against elections results – Museveni Warns

President Yoweri Museveni has warned his opponents not protest against the election results

“If you use violence to protest against an election result, that is treason,” Museveni said in a national address Tuesday.

Ugandans began voting in a tense election on Thursday under heavy security. The veteran leader Yoweri Museveni, who is pursuing a sixth term against a former pop star half his age had ordered social media to be shutdown in the country.

The internet went down on the eve of the vote, with some parts of the country reporting complete disruptions or significant slowdowns, after one of the most violent campaigns in years.

The population has a median age of just less than 16, and many Ugandans have never known anyone but Museveni in charge
