Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni was reelected to a sixth term in office with 58.64 percent of the vote. His closest challenger  Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine), won 34.83%.  Shaka says in Uganda  every five years people run for elections but they do not have to opportunity to compete fairly and adds that the “political playing field has never been level since 1986.”  We, he says, are interested in “an election where the people are the primary stakeholders.”Paul Ndiho challenges some of Shaka’s assumptions and discuss comments from  social media followers.
