Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni extends his 30 year regime today in light of the Ugandan elections held this week. #UgandaDecides was rife with political turmoil, ballot discrepancy and rapturous violence.
One of Africa’s longest-serving leaders, Museveni won 60.8 percent of the vote, while opposition candidate Kizza Besigye secured 35.4 percent, according to the electoral commission.
