In the wake of today’s presidential elections in Uganda, the government has shut down social media platforms especially most especially Facebook and Twitter as well as WhatsApp. This has been done in a bid to discourage any sharing of information concerning the ongoing elections in the country. It should be noted cheats and mal parctices have marred the Ugandan 2016 elections with some areas receiving voting materials as late as 2.00PM yet these are some of the opposition held areas.
