Mmusi Maimane has continued to advocate for transparent Ugandan elections, with suggestions that MTN Uganda has agreed to prohibit access to social media during the elections.
One South Africa Movement’s (OSA) Chief Activist, Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Wednesday, 13 January 2021, to continue his advocacy over the current political unrest in Uganda. Maimane has been using his platform to bring awareness to the alleged intimidation tactics by the current President of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni against presidential candidate, Bobi Wine.
According to videos on social media, Wine’s team and family were allegedly harassed to discourage him from running. Now, reports are suggesting that Museveni has called for a disruption in internet access on Thursday, 14 January 2021, to allegedly hide the violence that may ensue.
Maimane has been one of the outspoken African political leaders that have been encouraging social media platforms, like Twitter, to ban Museveni. Therefore, Maimane has also called out telecommunications company, MTN, for reportedly agreeing to disrupt internet access on election day.
