Despite election loss, Uganda's Bobi Wine wins growing power
While longtime President Yoweri Museveni has been declared the winner of a sixth term, the rise of the 38-year-old Wine's party marks a generational shift. You keep cutting, chipping away until the tree falls," said Joel Ssenyonyi, spokesman for Wine's National Unity Platform. Museveni, a former guerilla leader who has held office since 1986, faced arguably his greatest election challenge yet from Wine. Wine, who is effectively under house arrest, can challenge the election results in Uganda's highest court. A presidential candidate must launch any legal challenge to election results within 10 days of the declaration of final results.
