Facebook shuts Uganda accounts ahead of tense poll

A Ugandan official accuses Facebook of meddling in the East African country's election after several accounts linked to President Yoweri Museveni's campaign were removed for alleged inauthentic behaviour. Also, South Africa has secured 20 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines which are expected to be delivered mainly in the first half of the year, President Cyril Ramaphosa said in a state address on Monday. And a coalition of rebels continue to launch attacks in Central African Republic. The clashes have meant that goods haven't been able to move in or out of the capital Bangui.
