Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter to call on global leaders, including outgoing AU President, Cyril Ramaphosa, to intervene in the continued internet ban in Uganda.
One South Africa Movement’s (OSA) Chief Activist, Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Thursday, 4 February 2021, to continue raising awareness on the political climate in Uganda. Bobi Wine, who was the presidential candidate tapped to win the elections, has reportedly been under house arrest since the elections. President Kaguta Yoweri Museveni reportedly triumphed over Wine, despite the initial reports of Wine being in the lead.
Days after the elections, Wine reportedly attempted to have the African Union (AU) intervene, in an effort to verify the vote counting, as asocial media ban, which is still ongoing, was put in place by the state.
In recent weeks, Maimane has been calling for an intervention from different bodies. He also called on outgoing AU President, Cyril Ramaphosa to intervene, despite Ramaphosa and the AU’s silence on the matter.

Everyone of us should stand for an open and accessible internet in #Uganda.
