Bobi Wine’s Phones Blocked as Voting Closes in Uganda

Foremost opposition candidate in Uganda’s Presidential election, Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wne) has revealed that his phone has been blocked, as he’s unable to make or receive calls again after the close of voting.

Bobi Wine, of the National Unity Platform, also revealed that the same thing has happened to his wife’s phone.

He made these revelations in tweets posted via his official Twitter handle.

“Like my wife’s, my phone has been blocked and I am unable to recieve or make regular calls. I know this is to stop me from communicating to our agents and coordinator. I encourage you comrades to be vigilant as I try to devise ways of reaching out to you.”

Meanwhile, voting has closed officially in the country with minimal troubles recorded by the Police. In comparison to the heated campaign that came before the election, voting was relatively peaceful across the country with few cases of violence.

The Ugandan Police announced it arrested some CSOs who have set up their own tally centres. The Police said the Electoral Commission of Uganda has the sole right to play such roles.
