What you need to know:

  • A source said Wine also asked the EU to ensure the government is held accountable for the violence against civilians during election campaigns.
  • It is not clear why Wine asked the EU to cause audit of the election yet he has filed a petition in court challenging the same election results.

Ugandan politician Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, has asked the European Union (EU) to cause an audit of  the January 14 presidential election, which he says he won but was robbed of his victory by President Yoweri Museveni.
 
Wine, leader of the opposition's National Unity Platform (NUP) party, met the request during a meeting with EU officials at his home at Magere in Kasangati, Wakiso District, on Saturday.
