Internet service has been restored in Uganda after being shut down for five days during the general election.
Following a government order, the service was closed on Wednesday night, just hours before the opening of polling stations last Thursday’s general election.
However, social networks still remain closed. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) party, Joel Ssenyonyi, said the office where his agents were preparing case documents to challenge the election results had been raided by the military.
Ssenyonyi said the agents were collecting election results forms with evidence of fraud.
This is after the residence of party leader Bobi Wine was besieged by government troops.
Bobi rejected the results of the presidential election as announced by the country’s electoral commission.
According to the results, President Yoweri Museveni won the race against second-placed Bobi Wine.
Bobi strongly criticized the way the election was conducted, claiming that he had enough evidence about fraudulent cases.
