Is there a deep dive out there on what the TPLF elite saw as their end-game? Because clearly things fell off the equilibrium path in a very costly way. Focus on how Addis is prosecuting the war (& civilian impacts) is warranted. But what was TPLF’s goal? Cc @RAbdiAnalyst

Long-time leader Yoweri Museveni was heading for a resounding win in Uganda’s presidential election with nearly all votes counted on Saturday, although his main rival Bobi Wine alleged widespread fraud. https://t.co/U26glgNIEd

#Uganda's Museveni leading with 62 pct of vote vs 30 pct after 37 pct of registered voters counted. Bobi Wine said there had been widespread fraud + he was under seige. Police said they'd merely boosted security for president's main rival. https://t.co/MUOIi9ULip

.@Reuters latest on #UgandaDecides. M7 won 64 pct of the votes with a quarter of ballots counted vs 28 pct for Bobi Wine, according to election commission. Wine rejected this, saying he's "winning" + promising video evidence of fraud. https://t.co/0gP5MkIkLz
