        According to his party, the Ugandan opposition leader Bobi Wine has been under house arrest since the presidential election.  Nobody could visit Wine, the spokesman for the Platform of National Unity (NUP), Joel Ssenyonyi, told journalists in Kampala on Sunday.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a><p>&nbsp;The&nbsp; opposition called the re-election of President Yoweri Museveni, announced on Saturday, a "masquerade".        </p><div>
        <p>According to the electoral commission, Museveni, who has ruled for almost 35 years, received just under 59 percent of the votes in Thursday's poll, while ex-singer Wine received almost 35 percent of the vote.  According to a short message distributed via Wines Twitter account, he and his wife have not left their house since Thursday, the food supplies were exhausted.</p>            

Soldiers and police had surrounded the house, said the party spokesman. MP Francis Zaake was said to have been hospitalized on Friday after trying to visit Wine. He was beaten on the way by security forces, said the NUP.

Once again, a minority is trying to impose its will on the majority of the population, Ssenyonyi said.

 The  party spokesman announced that she would use all means that are legally permissible.


 The  76-year-old Museveni has been at the head of the East African state since 1986. Thanks to a constitutional amendment, the former rebel leader can run for unlimited seats. He has kept the opposition small for years. Many Ugandans only know Museveni as their president. Wine claimed victory in the election on Friday.
