Hacking Claims In Kenya Election Can’t Be Ignored – Besigye
As Kenyans await the final results of the presidential election and the results of other positions, Ugandan opposition politicians say what is happening in Kenya, where their colleagues have claimed malpractices, was expected.
Former four-time presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye says it’s sad that no incumbent president in East Africa has ever handed over power after a ballot.
“No incumbent has ever handed over power to another person after being defeated, in the entire East African region,” Besigye said.
According to Besigye, most African leaders are not committed to organizing free and fair elections; they merely see elections as unnecessary rituals
“This is not a new situation they would be experiencing, we have experienced it here in every election and we have always proved it in courts,” Besigye said.
Besigye who has contested four unsuccessful times says he will not give up until Museveni has been dislodged.
