Bobi Wine Slams Soldiers' Intimidation Ahead of Uganda Polls

Elections are scheduled for early 2021, and President Yoweri Museveni hopes for a sixth term in office but to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus candidates must now campaign for votes by leaflet, radio, TV, or on the Internet. This is a difficult undertaking because incumbent Museveni exerts great influence on the mass media. MP Bobi Wine says: "When I tried to enter the radio station, the media building was surrounded by the army, and the soldiers began to beat my companions."
