Intimidates the opposition: Fact. More popular than opposition: fact. Elections not transparent: fact. Museveni wins majority vote: fact.

If someone asks you why Yoweri Museveni wins Ugandan elections , tell him/her to go ask Robert Mugabe.

As Museveni wins, EU observers are highly critical of the Uganda elections. But, they add: We are friends. No need to annul the results.
