Uganda: Live - Museveni Declared Winner of 2020 Uganda Presidential Elections Polling 58.64 Percent

Kampala — Elections Commission boss Justice Simon Byabakama has declared Yoweri Museveni Turuhagurwa Kaguta as the winner of the 2020 Uganda Presidential Elections.

At the 10th and final reading of the cumulative results declarations, Justice Byabakama noted the 'resilience and determination' of the people of Uganda who turned up to elect their leaders in the Parliamentary and Presidential elections even as the COVID-19 pandemic continued to be a threat to public health.

The opposition leader, who has been arrested multiple times during the campaigning, earlier said to reporters that the presidential election was marred by 'fraud and violence' without providing any evidence.

Bobi Wine said he would detail election irregularities by the ruling party once the internet was restored. The internet remained down for days as vote counting continued.

The final declared results are as below:
