38-year-old singer turned politician, Bobi Wine, has shared his thoughts on the Uganda Presidential election, after casting his vote.
Wine is taking on President Yoweri Museveni who is seeking his sixth term in office.
Ugandans headed to the polls on Thursday, following a tense presidential campaign marred by violence and deaths in the lead-up to the election.
Bobi Wine, 38, was spotted among a line of voters in the town of Magere, north of Kampala, earlier on Thursday.
Before casting his ballot, Wine addressed the media and complained that the majority of his polling agents across the country have been prevented from observing the election by police.
Ugandan law guarantees that every candidate is allowed representation at polling locations.
“Everybody was scared, they thought I would not cast my vote,” Wine said in a phone interview with local news station NTV.
“Here I am coming from the polling station. Having survived and overcome and surmounting all these challenges and odds I want to assure Ugandans that we can and indeed will win.”
