Social media platforms were blocked/ locked in Uganda on the day of presidential elections to stop people “telling lies”, according to President Yoweri Museveni said.

Mr Museveni, 71, is seeking to extend his 30-year rule, in a race widely seen as the tightest in the East African state’s history.
His main rival Kizza Besigye was briefly detained by police.
A foreign observer group condemned the blockage of social media and lengthy delays in opening voting booths.
