Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni was sworn in on Wednesday for his sixth term as president, as police surrounded the home of his main opposition rival who decried the inauguration as a “sham”.

Mr Museveni’s victory in January was overshadowed by the bloodiest pre-election crackdown in years, with opposition candidates forcibly prevented from campaigning and dozens of protesters killed by security forces.

The swearing in ceremony was attended by heads of state from countries across the continent, with Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo representing Nigeria.
