    Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni has won a sixth term in office after an election that has been marred by violence.

    Museveni maintained his grip on power after 35 years in office by winning nearly 60 per cent of the vote.

    But his challenger Bobi Wine urged people to reject the result saying it was the “most fraudulent election in the history of Uganda”.
