Abstract

Uganda’s 2021 presidential election shows that digital restrictions are becoming a routine part of the country’s electoral cycle. Not coincidentally, social media is increasingly used by political challengers such as Bobi Wine to mobilise popular support. Innocent Anguyo reports from Kampala on the election and relationship between Museveni’s government and the shifting online sphere.
