"Well, the situation in Uganda so desperate that the serum institute is in fact rolling out one of these experimental vaccines to see if that makes any difference in Uganda in the next few weeks, but because of COVID I think situations like this have really dropped out of the limelight. Because Ebola was a huge problem about four or 5 years ago, wasn't it, but the vaccine and the vaccines I think there's about 6 in process at the moment they're trying to pull together. But because of COVID, everybody put the Ebola vaccine to one side. And as a result, we've now got a much worse problem, or not we have the potential for a much worse problem. That's right. And there's a real concern about the spread of Ebola in Uganda and the wider region. The first ever case was recorded in Kampala, just a few days ago. So the fact that it's even gotten into the capital city is of great concern. And I think what's interesting here too is that Uganda is relatively well prepared to deal with Ebola. They've had a couple of outbreaks in the past so they have the infrastructure they have the know how to deal with this. But this is a particular strain of Ebola for which there isn't a vaccine at the moment. And the Ugandan government is really saying to researchers and governments around the world, just like COVID, you need to help us in our time of need. We're now going to try a bit of a handbrake turn. We're going to leave the death and destruction which you have delightfully and deliciously meted out to us for the last couple of moments. And we're going to move to an issue of major importance in the United Kingdom. Sorry, in the United States, which is men's hair. I did wonder how you were going to do this Emma, but I didn't. I did it badly. I knew as an absolute professional that you would have absolutely no challenge in moving us seamlessly from Ebola in Uganda to the national mullet championships in the U.S.. This is a running story. I don't know if you've been following this Emma, but I have very closely for the last month and thankfully NPR have been following this blow by blow. We are four weeks into the national mullet championships and we are about to reach at the end of the competition. The winner of the national mullet champion in America will be announced on Thursday. This is as a result of online, but also celebrity mullet judging. We're down to the last 25. There's a fantastic NPR interview with Scott Salvador from stillwater, New York State, who's one of the 25 finalists who tells us that he spent four and a half years cultivating this mullet. And most of your listeners, I'm sure will be familiar with the mullet, but of course it's short in the front and very long at the back. And look at the front party at the back. Indeed, and I can confess to having sported one of these in the 1990s. So hence a very close why? Well, I mean, I come from Adelaide where this was almost a badge of honor. It was very difficult to be a young man and not have a mullet in the place that I'm from in South Australia. So what makes a good mullet? I think I feel some of the mullets in this current competition are over cultivated. I think it has to have a slightly off handed feel. It has to be natural at it. You have to seem like you might popped out of the womb with one of these. So I wasn't convinced by Scott Salvador's interviewer. He said he'd spent four and a half years cultivating. This where I come from that would have disqualified you immediately. But tell us, I mean, what's an amazing about this? So I'm still rendered reasonably speechless by this. Is that they've actually got names for these ballads? They do. I didn't, but I did have a band called mullet. This is how far we took it. And our symbol was a picture of a fish, the mullet, with a mullet, it worked on many levels. I see at least a thankfully. Many people say Americans don't have a sense of irony. There is a huge amount of irony to these mullet championships there. NPR website has profiles on the individuals. And a real sense of where they come from and why they've done what they've done, but the nation waits with bated breath, the world waits with bated breath to see who's announced the winner on Thursday. Phil Clark, we are immensely grateful for telling us about that. Listening to the globalist.

"And why? And the brightest flash, the universe has ever seen what caused it. All that coming up after this bulletin of the latest world news. BBC News with Sue Montgomery. A big fire is broken out at avine prison in the Iranian capital, Tehran, where hundreds of political prisoners and dozens of dual nationals are held. In videos posted online gunfire and sirens can be heard, an Iranian official has been quoted in the local media, blaming the fire and what he called unrest, which he said had been brought under control. Sebastian Asher has more details. We only have these videos at the moment to go on, but what is clear from that is that this is a fire on a very big scale. The BBC Persian is just spoken to a lawyer with a client in the prison who is saying that the riot police have entered the prison also, but the families, of course, for the prisoners are gathering with great concern over what's happening. It's unclear whether this is a demonstration, perhaps by the prisoners in support of the protests that have been going on now into their 5th week or something else has happened there. The Ugandan government has imposed an overnight curfew in two districts affected by Ebola, the measures were lost for three weeks. Patients are reports.

Elon Musk gave no reason for his apparent change of mind, but the threat to start charging Ukraine had been harshly criticized as had been his earlier proposals for ending the war, which many felt favored the Kremlin and would have allowed it to keep illegally occupied land.

Those the day's headlines, back to Andrew. Thank you, Emma, you are listening to the briefing on monocle 24, Uganda has written a check for 65 million U.S. dollars to the Democratic Republic of Congo. The first installment of a total of $325 million. Uganda is on the hook for this amount by way of reparations for its involvement in the multi country wars, which consumed the DRC during the late 1990s to early 2000s. This gesture towards justice has been a while in coming. The DRC first tried to haul Uganda before the International Court of Justice in 1999, then seeking $11 billion in compensation. While joined with more on this by Phil Clark, Professor of international politics at psoas University of London, Phil, first of all, before we get to the reparations, let's talk a bit about what Uganda is having to pay reparations for. Why did Uganda get involved in Congo in the first place? Uganda was really trying to capitalize on a really weak period in Congo in the late 90s. This was after the fall of mobutu. Uganda saw in particular a huge economic opportunity. So Uganda put its national army across the border. It invaded the attorney province of northeastern Congo and basically occupied their territory for the best part of 5 years. And during that period there was the mass murder of local Congolese citizens at about 500,000 Congolese people were displaced from that area. There was also a mass pillage. Uganda was basically ripping gold and diamonds and other natural resources out and enriching them that way. So this was a really brutal period of Uganda and occupation, but also incredibly lucrative for the Ugandan government at the time. Well, is it possible therefore that Uganda is actually been quite happy to pay this if it makes the whole thing go away because $325 million is $325 million, but it's a lot less than 11 billion. Indeed, and that was one of the things that the Congolese government complained about in 2015. They went back to the International Court of Justice and said, look, Uganda's refusing to pay any compensation at all. So we need the court to have a look at this case again. And I think it's true that Uganda's calculation is that what they've been forced to pay in terms of reparations is minuscule in terms of what the Congolese government was demanding that the first time around, that the other thing that's happening here is that in the meantime, Uganda and Congo have actually fostered quite positive relations in the last year and the Ugandan government is now benefiting from very lucrative contracts in eastern Congo. These are deals that they've done with the Congolese government. So it seems that now Uganda's also quite comfortable to pay these reparations because at the moment they're doing quite well out of these new contracts in eastern Congo. So if you add all of that up, Uganda's coming out of this looking pretty good. Is there a delineation here in this judgment between Uganda's involvement in the first and second Congo wars granted that the two followed each other with such rapidity that they almost seem like the same conflict, but is it possible for example that more cases might be pending? I don't think they're in cases pending. I think this is probably the end of the legal road. But the question you ask is exactly the right one that there's a bit of a slide of hand that's gone on here that if you look at exactly what the International Court of Justice has said, it focuses on Uganda's occupation of turi. Particularly between 1999 and 2003, and of course that was a very brutal period. But what it leaves out is what Uganda was doing in that same part of Congo between 1996 and 1999, which arguably was just as brutal and just as rapacious and just as lucrative for the Ugandan government. So I think that's another part of this case that Uganda will be quite pleased about that the court hasn't scrutinized those crimes, particularly from 1996 to 1999. Nevertheless, if you read the breakdown of the amount and how the ICG ICJ rather has arrived at it, a lot of it is fairly boldly compensation for the obviously atrocious behavior of Ugandan troops in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Is the extent of those crimes widely understood within Uganda or do the Ugandan media not really pay all that much attention to it. No, these crimes are definitely well documented in the Ugandan press. Uganda's media is pretty vociferous and they were reporting even in the late 90s and the early 2000s, almost day by day, the crimes that Ugandan army across the border. But one of the big things that I think that ICJ case leaves out because of course the ICJ can only look at our cases of state versus state concerns. It doesn't zero down to look at individual Ugandan military officers.

Many thanks to guy our Balkans correspondent. You're listening to the globalist on monocle 24. Well, let's continue now with today's newspapers and joining me in the studio actually down the line. I was having a moment of hallucination there, Phil I thought you were here in front of me, but in fact, not Phil Clark. Thanks so much for coming on the show. Thanks, George. I prefer to be in the studio. That would be the ideal place to be. Absolutely. Let's talk about this terror attack in Kampala. So this happened on Tuesday. What more can you tell us? So this is the big story in all of the Ugandan and the East African newspapers this morning. So I'm looking particularly at the piece in the daily monitor, which is the main opposition newspaper in Uganda. It's reporting that Islamic State had claimed responsibility for these two suicide bomb attacks that took place in Kampala that Ugandan capital yesterday. There was a big bomb attack right near the Ugandan parliament. There was a large bomb attack on the central police station only a few minutes later. Straightaway after the attacks, the Ugandan government said that this was the responsibility of a group called the IDF, which is a sort of loosely Islamist rebel movement based in eastern Congo. In the last few hours, Islamic State have come out and said that they are responsible for this attack. Now, this is the kind of thing we've seen Islamic State do in the past. They often claim responsibility for attacks that they have a very tenuous link to. So I wouldn't take these reports to seriously that Islamic State is at all directly connected to these suicide bombings yesterday, but it does seem pretty clear that this ADF group from eastern Congo is responsible. This is a group that's been seeking the overthrow of the Ugandan government for a very long time. These are the largest bombings that the ADF have been able to carry out in Kampala itself. They had typically been relegated to quite a small territory in the borderlands between Uganda and Congo. But this shows that the rebel group have got a much larger reach and they're able to get very close to the seat of power in Uganda now. And their aim would be simply to remove the government. That does seem to be its objectives. And again, there's a lot of discussion today in the Ugandan newspapers about whether the ADF really would even be able to carry that objective out. It seems like ultimately what they're trying to do is to really disrupt the Ugandan state to send a message that they are here that they are a very present rebel group that they're reaches increasing. But the capacity of this group is still incredibly limited. They're not the kind of group that could really bring down a Museveni's government. In Uganda. But certainly this is the largest idea of attack that we've seen in Kampala are several people were killed yesterday. They're a scores of people in hospital today. So it does suggest that this group is expanding in its reach and expanding in its clout in this wider region. Let's move on to look at the story that's dominating all the British press today. And that is the Yorkshire cricket racism hearings. This is a big piece in The Guardian today reporting on these parliamentary hearings that were held in London yesterday, particularly featuring a young British Asian cricketer called azim Rafiq who I guess has lifted the lid on institutional racism in British cricket. Rafiq was a long-standing player for Yorkshire, and he said that over many years he suffered racial epithets from very senior players some of those senior players had also represented England and that there was selection issues that many British Asian players simply weren't being selected for Yorkshire because of the color of their skin. And that this issue around Yorkshire has become such a big issue. The parliament, in fact, held a special hearings yesterday to try to get to the bottom of it now. What I think is important here is that this is more than just about Rafiq it's more than just about Yorkshire cricket club. It's about cricket in English society, more generally. But I think a lot of what Rafiq talked about yesterday I really goes to the heart of racism in Britain more broadly. It's partly about what's happening on the cricket field, but it's also about what's happening in the society, writ large. And I think that's the reason that all the British papers are running very prominent stories on that parliamentary select committee today because it says something very important about racism in British culture. And let's look at racism in Australian government regulations because basically this new heritage Bill. That is at the heart of the row about it. There's been a lot of criticism about this bill, which is meant to protect protect indigenous culture. This is a story in the WA today, which is one of the more left leaning newspapers in Western Australia. Reporting on this new heritage bill that was put before the western Australian state parliament yesterday. The crux of the bill is that it's designed to protect Aboriginal cultural sites from the kind of destruction by mining companies that we saw with Rio tinto about 18 months ago, many listeners will remember there was this big case at the duke on gorge where Rio tinto were opening up a new iron ore mining spot. And in the process destroyed a 46,000 year old indigenous site. Well, that prompted the tabling of this new bill yesterday, which is ostensibly designed to protect indigenous heritage. But the bill has been very heavily criticized by Aboriginal groups in Western Australia, who picked up on the fact that the bill basically gives the relevant state minister complete control over determining whether a mining company can dig in a particular spot with no consultation with the indigenous groups in question. So a huge amount of power invested in in one single minister. And also that the bill doesn't include any appeals process. So if an indigenous group is worried that their cultural sites are likely to be destroyed by a mining company if the minister finds against that particular group that they have no recourse under this bill. So there's a concern that the western Australian parliament is trying to seem like it's doing something to protect indigenous heritage. But if you really dig down into the details of this, it looks like this is a bill that is still heavily skewed towards mining interest in the state of Western Australia. And finally, let's talk about 3D stake. This is a remarkable story. It said that doing the rounds and again in a lot of the British papers today, Marco Pierre white who's this very well known French chef. He was the youngest ever chef in the world to win a Michelin star at the age of 32. Has come out and said that in all of his London restaurants, he's going to start serving 3D printed vegan steaks. And he's got a long interview in the independent newspaper today talking about how he discovered an Israeli company that makes these vegan stakes. He's saying that we need to be eating less meat. There's obviously a health and a climate related concern around the eating of too much meat. And so he thinks that 3D printed steaks in the way forward. How on earth does that work? I mean, why do they need to come out of a printer? I think it's quite amazing. It goes into pretty graphic detail about how these stakes are produced that they made out of peas and chickpeas and beetroot and apparently they fed through one of these are 3D printers and white claims that these states have the same texture as a meat steak wood and he thinks that you can't tell the difference at all in the taste, but I think this also fits a bit of a culinary pattern in London at the moment. A lot of these restaurants are competing with one another to have the most weird and wonderful steak based products on their menus, many people will have seen the story recently of a London restaurant that was selling 1000 pound at gold plated estates. It should be said that whites 3D printed states look like they're only sell for about 30 pounds, so that perhaps not as grandiose as the gold plated states. But there is a bit of a competition going on for quirky meat based products at the moment. But white has decided to push his into a more environmentally friendly lane. Very interesting stuff can't wait to try it..

I love food. I love good foods. I'll qualify to and fresh organic food sustainably grown food and we still have that on the continent we can definitely feed ourselves but with the free trade agreements we rick amazing that the agricultural sector is being affected every single day. Africa is home to about seventy. Three million smallwood fabulous. Wow on most women now when we took a boat though contribution women women controversy about sixty percent before integrate contractor monday produced about eighty percent of the food that he's called shoot out so we ended up play the role of slow farmers at any point and our governments. And i'm sure the kenyan government says it's the ugandan government has declined mini and the governments in every single political policy. Document that you read. They tell us that ugly coach that is the backbone of all economies. Yes we let that in school. And then we agree is the backbone of economies funded sufficiently funded so somebody sink so one idea and says okay. Let's go to africa to this continent that is vast and bring something that will change the entire food and agriculture assistive. So the first thing that was done enough kind continent was to remove the government from the sector under the impotent Through that stretch had just been programs and once the role of the government was removed from the agricultural sector and even the hill. Six tally because all of those was taste Privatization means making money. It doesn't mean anything else. It means making money so rules that way. Important lake extension services medicine services for hospitals and planning medicine hubs business as a louis things for farmers. What completely lost once we privatize because they were kaz of the government concern. That meant that somebody else gutted. Running agriculture sector. It means that somebody else is putting the strings on the kind of seeds the plant when we plan to them and the kind of crops that we have so number one free trade agreements do not help alike agriculture sector. Because one of the things they do is the push for the commodification or things makes seats. The commodification of suits also comes. We'd standardization so they had very bad seed laws that have been passed at the moment which are pushing fool commercial seats expense or seeds are growing in our communities now to give you an example when we rented seeds before the african continent what used to the women used to collect seats and then decide which feeds into the next season and we seem to be used as food on which is going to be stored so the selection process. The storage persist all of those jobs that were done at home. Even the akzo seed exchange. That was so happy because you went to a nearby. Because you see it wasn't doing too well and your name by enhanced your crop with by giving you seat when we go into free trade agreements with criminalize the signals that come criminalize some of these things some communities sherry. So you're supposed to go to the market to buy the seat that you plant the next season as opposed to saving seed from the previous season to the next season. When does that do it removes the role of women in traditional roles of women. Sat getting promex. Because who buy city women. It's meant safe. You can impair value. Chain white entails itchy. It means that the man bites because the man owns the money so by the will sell the seat the jobs that had done in between the visting parenting storage weeding all of those identify women. Which has thankless jobs. A tweet hundred triple so that is one. The second one is that the free trade agreements push for agribusiness. agribusiness comes into the continent. They push for industrial from which is pushing for planting when large tracts of land and therefore smallholder farmers we know plant in about three to ten it. Yes they never planned to be of not the moment you say you bring an industrial farm. You're planting maize was soya which is also used for fuel mostly. But you're planting veteran about ten square miles of mates to acquire land. The was that need to plant maize. You need to get rid of moore who out to. Actually you read many many small crane to get enough land to us. Industrial culture culture is very expensive. Because you're planting one type of crop unique pesticides you need machinery and you need a huge labor force so that farmers that were originally independent become employees industrial coach assistant or they become outgrow us some playing the bigger firm and that way they lose their independence if they had outgrew as those data querying bit because they have to get fundraisers and seed from the farm because they have to plant in uniformity. That's another story affecting diversity. Losing additional varieties. We start losing. If there's about seventy five varieties of maize kind of gun to an fob. Where you know they need uniformity. You plant one join of and that is also sort of like a linkage to issues so with free trade agreements one of the things that we sign when we negotiate is liberalization which is always systematically brutalization station six tenths essentially doing with liberalization is that we are breaking down.

Oh boy so in march of two thousand twelve invisible children releases this slickly produced thirty minute long video detailing joseph kony's career with the point of making him a household name. Let's just assume the households are in the west going to stop. I made that promise to jacob not knowing what it would mean but now i do over the past nine years i have fought to fulfill it and the fight has led me here to this movie. Your watching because that promise is not just about jacob or me. It's also about you and this year. Twenty twelve is the year that we can finally fulfil it. The underlying message is that we need to do. We change the something about something. Is running appearing. Listen back to this video. So there's a clear focus in this video on the kind of promise of social media. the number. One thing they wanted us to do was to share the movie online the call to action had about three steps overall. One signed the pledge to get kony twenty twelve bracelet and action kit for only thirty dollars and three sign up to donate to invisible children. Kony twenty twelve goes viral in a big way. Perhaps the biggest way anything had ever gone viral. Yep that point shots to the guardian and the p. research center for compelling these stats kony two thousand twelve. The video was the speedy ever to reach one hundred million views on youtube which should achieved within sixty days of posting fifty eight percent of adults between eighteen and twenty nine said they had heard of the video in the days following the launch. That is just a cut homing large. That is insane. Things that go viral on the internet right now feel like they have a bigger reach but the things that we describe as viral on the show. I don't think they've day. Percent of adults between eighteen and twenty nine would say they've heard of bama rush talk. You know with that growth and that rapid league growing audience comes almost immediate backlash critics attacked russell and the film for bending facts and there were questions about the group's financial dealings glosses over not of the complexities for example in a war full of contradictions and it makes a villain out of one man in a wall full of bad people. There's also been a lot of criticism of the filmmaker himself. I think what is not shown in the video as the other part of this picture which is a ugandan military that has also been tremendously abusive in terms of the rights of invisible children. The organization has also come under fire for not sending enough of the donations. It collects to africa a couple of the key. Criticisms are that the kony two thousand twelve made it appear as though coney had tens of thousands thirty thousand child soldiers when we all watched that video in march two thousand twelve when that was how many children he had abducted over the course of decades and that is just to be clear horrifying and terrible but those details are important. It also didn't make clear that kony was most likely probably definitely no longer in uganda. Yes that's the kind of a key part. In terms of the fact that uganda was trending and coney was not there. The video also supported the ugandan government's army which also does not have a great human rights record no also doesn't have a great human rights record the united states military. What was wild about this. Video is that it was tacitly in kind of explicitly supporting military interventions specifically u. s. military intervention and. I feel like if there's anything we've learned is that maybe that's not great at this point. We're pretty well. Situated in march of two thousand twelve kony. twenty twelve is in many ways an unprecedented success. It has this huge groundswell of support followed quickly by a huge groundswell of criticism but what it also has is a call to action cover. The night is supposed to take place on april twentieth.

Now it's not unusual to see broadcasters producing documentaries examining the nation's political leadership. Somalis can from today see a six part feature marking President Mohamed of the Life form Badgers four years in office. With elections approaching, of course, but the president shouldn't expect to kind of picture as formaggio, false promises and fading hopes. Being produced by the Al Shabaab militant group of fighting to take control of the country sources all about Let's speak to be pitied Monitoring Africa security analyst Beverly of Shanghai Beverly. How unusual is it then a sort of big documentary Syriza from Al Shabaab, So the documentary is still waiting a real released, but it claims that the six part feature will be an objective view off some of the pledges that present for module has failed to fulfill over the past four years. The first episode six Acted any time today and will focus on the election, and those following somebody will know that the polls have been delayed due to protracted political differences. Al Shabaab wants to unpick this as a way of not just undermining the election, but also for modules tenure it sees itself as a stakeholder in Somalia's political developments, and in vast parts of Somalia are Shabaab is almost like an alternative and the most of burst of administration and this documentary is just an example of this. What I find interesting, just going By the title is the premise false hopes. Sorry. Excuse me, false promises and fading hopes, you know, that almost suggests that they had some hopes that President for Maja would bring from progress to Somalia. And yet, presumably, that wasn't al Shabaab's thoughts. When he came to office. They were opposed to him as I have been toe Any government in Mogadishu. It's a rather sort of sophisticated. You're into the documentary, isn't it? And that's true. I mean, I think it also please on what so money's on. Expectations were off our module and you have to keep in mind. Also, Bob's messaging tends to align itself to create some affinity with the local Demonstrate that it is with them so Somali people may have had hopes and it wants to pick on some of those hopes to some of the things that talks about is the state of the economy. Al Shabab has its own alternative economy. We've seen cases off. It's raising its own funds to be able to carry out militant activities and even humanitarian activities, so to speak, because it's not really a positive light. There are still a very dangerous group. And in doing so they do demonstrate that the Somali government is a failure and people should see all the ways that it has failed from our Joe came in off course, with the hopes that the militant group would be decimated. We've seen foreign and forces working in Germany and the U. S, which is also sort of made a comeback after being withdrawn under Trump's orders, has made some efforts to the institute, the national Army to be stronger. But according to about this is leading to further Balkanization of Somalia through the federal states, and we've seen federal state differences come up in this election. It also talks about how so many people themselves. They do not have a stake in the election. So the first part says. Is this an election or the selection process? What role they play? So it's more than hopes off the people that it plays up on its own documentary, Syriza's election selection. I've heard foreign diplomats make similar Commons. Macleod suggest there are lying to our ship, Bob. What I am interested about here is if they are saying here that the government has essentially failed. Are they likely briefly if you could convince people who weren't already likely to support them. E wouldn't say that they would convince them to support them because they are so deeply entrenched in places and present themselves as AH force to reckon with. So they do play up the sense that they are the administration and alternative parts central and southern Somalia. But for people who've already been so deeply disenfranchised, they are likely to be subdued to support al Shabaab, even if it's not within their will. But I don't think it'll just further undermine this election and the government. But its threat will continue. That is our Africa security analyst of BBC Mantra in Beverly or change.

"Least to set our top story this hour. An official result is declared in Uganda's presidential election today. The commission of the election announced 76 year old You wary Miss Ebony in power for the past 35 years, has been re elected. 5.85 million votes that's just shy of 60% of the total. His main challenger, the popular singer turned politician, 38 year old Bobby Wine came in second with 3.48 million votes. That's about 35% of the vote. Mr Wine has called it the most fraudulent election and Ugandan history, vowing to present the evidence. Once the Internet is restored. We'll hear from Mr Wine and a government minister in a moment. But first you where he was. 70 has responded to this announcement. Here's what he had to say about how a biometric voting system prevented fraud in a minute kisses. People wanted a baby by the machines. No ruddy by machines, Mitch Bed Sure. There is no cheating. So therefore, on account of the some print identification machines machines, this may turn out to be the most cheating free election. In the 58 years of Uganda's independence. Cheating free election in Ugandan history Well, I've been speaking to the BBC's Africa correspondent Catherine Bureau Hunger in the Ugandan capital Kampala. What it's late in the evening here in Uganda on the president looked hired. He's been through months off campaign and that really could show in his demeanor. This really felt like a campaign speech rather than a victory speech as well as a presidential source. We've also had parliamentary results coming in from parts of the country. And it's a bleak picture for the government. More than half off the cabinets have lost their seats. So what you had today was the president explaining to Ugandans what has gone wrong. And he blames what he caused elected elites. People he says, were elected under operating in their own interests, but in the interest off the masses Government is saying Kathryn that this proves that these elections were free and fair. The fact that so many members of the government lost their seats. I know it may be too early to say, But do they have an argument or something else had worked here? These are two very different elections. But on the national scale, the electoral commission has serious questions to answer. The president referred to these biometric machines, which we know we're not working properly on Election Day. He says. That might have something to do with the Internet. Shut down. The other thing is what whether results that the electoral Commission was announcing if there was no Internet and they could not receive Elektronik results. From local governments. Where were these results coming from? And so over This few days, you might see more questions on the electoral commission would have to explain. The results that they were announcing the opposition has the opportunity to go to the Supreme Court, where they can present evidence off vote rigging, they can present evidence of voter intimidation. Now. The other option is whether Bobby wind might call for popular protests against the result and even though his one million's off votes over three million votes There's no guarantee that there is an appetite for such protest in Uganda. Correspondent Catherine Nebula. Hunger Well, Certainly the government is declaring victory, and I heard that earlier from the government Minister Betty among a When I asked her whether she believed the process had been free and fair. The general observation not from government of Uganda, but from the head off European Union, the head off African Union or exam between all of them indicated that they're very interest with the peaceful way that the election was conducted. There was very high turnout throughout the country on people exercise their walking right in a very peaceful environment. But Minister Monkey and as you know, the United States and the European Union did not deploy observer teams, But the U. S. State Department's top diplomat for Africa has basically described and this is his quote. The electoral process has been fundamentally flawed, and he cited the fraud reports the denial of accreditation to observers. The violence and harassment of Opposition members, including of course, the main opposition leader, Bobby Wine and the arrest of civil society activists That doesn't sound like a verdict of free and fair. I can authoritatively say that yesterday. The head of the European Union delegation saves that I am impressed with the level of organization on this full contact exhibited during the presidential and parliamentary elections, but that's a different thing. With all due respect, that's a different thing. That's the peaceful nature. That's a credit to Ugandans that they came out and voted peacefully. This is about the process, and as you know, there's been grave concern about the violence. The attacks. The arrests against opposition supporters, including Bobby Wine, where arrested where arrested majorly because off flouting second rules and regulations off forbid 19. There might be a few incidences where security open overstepped demanded. When is the Internet going to be restored? There is very, very soon the Internet will be back on. It is not only one result that resulted in tow a decision being met that letters aloud the people of this country to make a decision not based on the influence of outside forces. That's based on their decision that we have seen on on the agenda off individual candidates. So the A robust defense of this election by government Minister Betty A. Monkey. Well earlier, we did get through to the main opposition presidential candidate, Bobby Wind, but Thean Internet in Uganda is still suspended as we've been reporting, so we talked to him on quickening landline. But when asked him what was his response to president was 70 claiming victory. I mean on reject announcements with a contemporary design. Even when this election was mined with violence with a lot of my practice with loved over his humanity with government, so dance, starting balance and 14 people to vote from 17 on gun point, even with those irregularity Everywhere isn't country.
