Fierce Contest Sees Ugandan Opposition Get New Leader

At the end of the February 2016 elections, Patrick Amuriat Oboi was down, having lost his parliamentary seat. At only 54, though, he was not yet out. But very few would have expected him to get up so fast, writes Derric Wandera  in the Daily Monitor. Amuriat has been declared new president of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change.
