february 19, 2011 - Kampala, Uganda - Presidential candidate Kizza Besigye (2nd R) of Uganda's four-party opposition coalition, Inter-Party Cooperation (IPC), is flanked by his wife Winnie Byanyima (R) as he addresses a news conference in the capital Kampala. Veteran leader Yoweri Museveni was on course to extend his rule to 30 years after provisional results on Saturday gave him a commanding lead, but the opposition said the presidential election had been fixed. Besigye said huge sums had been used to buy votes, bribe polling agents, candidates in the simultaneous parliamentary election, and electoral officials. But he stopped short of categorically rejecting the result. Photo credit: Benedicte Desrus
