The Uganda Electoral Commission has claimed that a number of videos circulating on social media citing electoral malpractices are not made in Uganda, urging they have started investigating their sources.
It has been a week since Ugandans went to the polls to choose the next president where the incumbent Yoweri Museveni Kaguta of the National Resistance Movement who garnered 58.6% of the vote against National Unity Platforms Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine who came second with 34.6%.
The polls were however conducted amidst an internet blackout which lasted an entire five days and on return to the internet, several videos started surfacing, showing several irregularities including ballot stuffing.
However, speaking to reporters during an interview, EC spokesperson Paul Bukenya dismissed a number of videos as not made in Uganda.
Constitutional lawyer Jude Byabakama while weighing in on the matter also added that the evidence of recordings by NUP supporters would be good evidence if the people who filmed them are willing to go on record.
The aggrieved parties have at least five more days to file a petition challenging the victory of Yoweri Museveni.
