The 3rd AfricTivistes summit which was expected to take place in Nairobi, Kenya at the end of October 2021 will finally be held in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire from 11th to 13th November due to stricter Covid-19-related restrictions.
The Ugandan people are electing today, Thursday, December 14, 2021, their President and parliamentarians. The presidential polls pits the outgoing head of state Yoweri Museveni, 76, against 10 other candidates including Robert Kyagulanyi better known as Bobi Wine, 38, an MP and key figure of the opposition. Unfortunately, Museveni, who still wants to stay in power after 35 years, seems to be preparing a coup. Indeed, despite repeated alerts from human rights and democracy organisations including AfricTivistes, the internet has been cut off throughout the country since January 13rd.
