1:05 pm
because we know that the main rival of museveni. kizza besigey said that the elections was a scam. do you think that he museveni ran a big campaign or did vote rigging have a part in the results? >> i think we have to get to the facts of the rigging. we can't just conclude that there was a rigging. but the problems of most african countries is that the loser usually do not accept. yes, there were problems. in any country in africa there are problems. but on the whole there was lev level-ground campaign worked, and that's one of the tenants of democracy.
1:06 pm
it's an election with oppositi opposition. with over 1 million. let me come to the point where the wide opposition in uganda keeps losing an election. they have never united into a single person or party that can actually give competition to president museveni. two, the president is well-known. there are so many other good things that he has done in terms of security. and the uganda is in favor of museveni. you can see the personal voting coming through the entire areas who are pro opposition while the ruler areas wrought back the vote for museveni.
1:07 pm
>> as we talk about the imagine opposition leader is still under house arrest, where do you see the situation in uganda going now? first of all, do you see the next few weeks, months being peaceful, and what do you think museveni will bring. >> the election is behind. it's not the only occupation we should have. there are so many things. president museveni is beyond 75 years. the rule is that you cannot stand after 75 years. we have high violence in our country, and we have problems,
1:08 pm
yes. and the election had challenges, but why should we go to the streets to fight? we shouldn't fight. whoever loves uganda most. wwhen the president reaches 75 years, please leave the stage and live on your legacy. fighting on the streets is not the norm. we have to say that tomorrow we shall improve. the opposition in yo uganda needs to improve. we're never united. the distance between opposition leaders is a distance between us and the mass. therefore you cannot win.
1:09 pm
museveni launched a big campaign. >> we'll be discussing the situation in uganda again. thanthank you for sharing your views request us. >> well, the former central african republic prime minister has won presidential run off with 62% of the vote. that's according to provisional results. it's hoped that the election will restore democracy and help end inter religious violence following the fo toppling of the president in 2015. they defeated another former prime minister who won 37% of the vote. a state of emergency has been declared in fiji as it gets battered by one of the strongest storms recorded in the southern
1:10 pm
hemisphere. tropical storm winston makes its way across the pacific. that's the equivalent of a category 5 hurricane. caroline malone has more. >> racing to get out of the way cyclone winston, the strongest storm to hit fiji. it has been battering the island with high winds and heavy rain. a nationwide curfew has been imposed at 6:00 p.m. local time. many islanders opt to stay at home rather than go to government shelters, but many buildings are flimsy and may not with stand the powerful winds. the anticipation of the highly likely basis of the cyclone might hit. >> rough seas across a wide area
1:11 pm
are endangering boats and ships. fiji is an ash spel--archipelago of several low-lying islands, and the winds and rain will destroy cops. waves were crashing over the walls earlier today. they. >> but there is only so much that islanders can do to prepare for such a massive storm bringing full force some of the populated parts of fiji overnight. caroline malone. al jazeera. >> we have been looking at why
1:12 pm
this cyclone is so powerful. >> meteorologist: well, the tropical cyclone winston is a force. it has little donuts here. it does not have the big bands of clouds and rain as many such cyclones do, and it tends to keep its path along this storm. the sustained winds are very, very high, incredibly powerful gusts, but thankfully it moves away to the west. as it does so, it will take the worse of the wind and rain with it. but certainly in the coming hours, it is going to remain very windy and very stormy. rain will continue for quite some time. flooding remains a major issue. we should find winston easing away in the coming hours. >> syria's opposition has agreed to hold a two-to three-week cease-fire if russia stops its air campaign. they said they'll work to resolve the crisis through
1:13 pm
democradiplomatic means, but there are concerns whether it can be implemented. we have this update in southern turkey. >> the opposition saying it will agree to a two-to three week truce. but russia must stop its air bombing campaign. aid should be delivered to the besieged areas. the areas shoulders lifted as well as vulnerable prisoners released. but the opposition is also demanding that the al-qaeda linked al nusra front is in included in this deal. they believe the very fact that it is excluded from the deal gives russia an excuse, a pretext to target other rebel forces on the ground. this is why they rejected the initial proposal that was agreed to in munich. at the end of the day al nusra operates on the ground where the moderate rebels operate, and they feel that russia to target the moderate levels and blame and say they're targeting
1:14 pm
al nusra instead. these are the continues. we still have no reaction from the russians. but the u.s. and the russians have been holding intensive discussions over the past few days. secretary of state john kerry saying they have been constructive, but he's also saying key issues still need to be resolved. this is a very complex operation, but this is in regard to cessation of hostilities, but on the ground the war wages on. >> indeed. eight people are killed in the homs in the west of syria. the raids were carried out on friday. a vacuum bomb was thought to have been dropped on the city killing women and children. the second attack targeted a mosque during fry prayers. >> we're trauma advertised. either we're killed on the roads or killed here. we're hit from the air, from the ground, everywhere we go we're slaughtered. >> every time we hear a plane. every time we hear a missile we hide. look, they're mostly kids.
1:15 pm
how do you expect them to live normally. people are going crazy here. the world has gone mad. for god's sake find a solution for us. >> meanwhile turkey is blaming russia for the stalled talks and in an interview with al jazeera, turkey's prime minister accused russia of ethnic cleansing in syria. >> the purpose of air takes are clear they want to make ethnic cleansing. they want to send all regional forces groups, all sunnies, kurds, and arab not important for them. all these who are against the regime. based on the humanitarian ground we're receiving the refugees. >> serbia has confirm thad two under se siege staff were targeted. they targeted an isil training camp west of the capital of
1:16 pm
tripoli. libyan officials are yet to confirm the depths but up to 50 people were killed in the attacks. serbian authorities have been working to secure the release of the hostages who had been kidnapped in november. >> i want to say that serbia has done everything we could to free our citizens. no demands other than financial ones have been made, and i think that these were absolutely impossible to fulfill. >> doctors in egypt have staged sit-in protests in their latest campaign in what they say is police brutality. one of the demonstrations in cairo is being held in silence. that's the highlight of the government's ban on public demonstrations. egypt's president is due to ask parliament for punishment for
1:17 pm
police brutality. >> free at last. one of america's longest-serving prisoners is released after 43 years in solitary confinement. and why members of india's agriculture community are taking a stand. also coming up in sport... >> i was trying to hit every ball. >> going out with a bang. new zealand's cricket captain smash as world record in his final test. >> it's another big day in the race of the white house in south carolina and democratic caucus in nevada. the polls suggest that hillary clinton and bernie sanders are neck and neck in the racially diverse state. a poll average by the website real clear politics gives
1:18 pm
clinton the 2.4 lead over sanders. nationally the former secretary of state seems to have edged slightly further with clinton leading sanders with five points. republicans in south carolina, donald trump is hoping to repeat his success in iowa. it will be a test for him and the other republican presidential candidates because of the significant percentage of blacks voters, but the polls give trump the comfortable 13-point lead. nationally he's also in front with marco rubio and ted cruz battling for second place and jeb bush way behind at just 5%. alan fisher reports. >> the weather and the state brings different challenges for the candidates fo.
1:19 pm
the diversity of the population is different than iowa and new hampshire combined. the challenge for the republican party is to tap in to that diversity so that their voters do not look like jus republican voters from iowa and new hampshire. >> the republican party remains a largely white party. it is not deepened terribly its citizens of color. that's ironic given that two of the influential members in south carolina include an indian-american governor and african-american senator. >> one republican presidential candidate told me he thinks that it's about to change. >> the democratic party has tried to convince blacks that they're the only option, but i think more and more people are actually starting to open their
1:20 pm
eyes and say, you know, where has that gotten us? we have more poverty. more crime, incarceration, broken family, food stamps, everything, it's much worse. so maybe if it's not working you should look at something else. >> kamia porter will vote for the first time in november. she does not want to see candidates pandering to special groups. they want to see the issues. >> they could be saying they're democrat but be saying something that does not line up with what i'm believing in. or they could say they're republican but i don't agree with the views. i think its more passion on what the issues are. >> it's been said that the road to the white house goes through south carolina. win here and you can win anywhere. but the attracting a broad base of supposed it could mean a victory for anyone. >> allen is live in south carolina to talk about the issue
1:21 pm
a little bit more. who does it look like is going to win, or is it too hard to tell right now? >> if you look at the polls, donald trump will win. if he does win, how big is his administer gin of victory. over the past few days he has had a spat with the pope. most republicans here in south carolina identify themselves as evangelical christian or deeply religious, but most of them are not catholic. donald trump has been able to say what he wants, insult who he wants and still it has not impacted him at the polls. he'll be hoping that thinks victory in new hampshire will translate to a victory here in south carolina. the really interesting race is going to be for second and third place. ted cruz is sitting in the polls. they believe they have momentum behind him now and it could pit him to second place.
1:22 pm
that would put cruz's campaign in trouble. even marco rubio finishes third it will be better than jeb bush and his campaign will be in difficulty there. it's a big military state people like jeb bush here. barbara bush has been on the campaign trail. it may be time for people in the party to say to jeb bush, look, we've got to unite behind the trump campaign, that means it isn't going to be you. rubio is our man. second and third is really going to be where the focus is. >> it will be interesting to see the result. what kind of campaign has it been, alan? >> well, south carolina is known for nasty politics. some of the campaigns have really been quite brutal.
1:23 pm
again what we're seeing in south carolina, almost every second tv ad is an attack ad. marco rubio has borne the brunt which suggests he has been doing quite well. but they've been calling each other layers, language that you would not normally here in a political discourse. here its gloves off, and they're saying what they think. donald trump has been called a liar. highways gone after ted cruz. ted cruz has gone after marco rubio and donald trump. it has been an incredibly nasty campaign. of course they'll be watching here not just for the republican results but they'll be looking to see what happens in nevada because i think a lot of people would like to see hillary run into problems because a bit like jeb bush she was presumed to be the candidate that was going to emerge from this primary contest. in the caucuses as well. so she struggles and bush struggles. it just shows how much these races can change in a matter of
1:24 pm
months. >> yes, these months have been full of prices. alan fisher live for us in south carolina. thank you. a series of price-fixe fixing schemes have forced chile's government to rethink it's free market rules. they are arguebly the most unregulated in the world. lucia newman on the cartel that are enraging chilea chileans. they have been paying more than they should an they know it. >> terrible, terrible, this price fixing goes on and on and no one goes to jail. >> we've been ripped off by shameless businessmen. it's outrageous. >> chile's three largest supermarket chains which account for 90% of sails are being
1:25 pm
indicted to keep chicken prices artificially high profiting $1.5 billion. this after revelations of another conspiracy by the two largest paper companies, which continually hiked up the price of toilet paper for more than a decade. the scandal has spread to columbia, peru and uruguay where one of the companies also does business. >> we realized that our free model of competition was not so free. that the market is organized in economic groups and families who join together to make more profit. >> many ask how these companies got away with it for so long. the answer is because they can. chile's pro free market legislation treats collusion not as a crime but as a misdemeanor with fines that are laughable compared to the profits that can be made. but that is about to change. the government has rushed a bill
1:26 pm
to conference to set fines and prison terms of up to ten years. >> if you don't have competition, you're not going to have those intensives. before you would expect economic growth. >> many irate customers are punishing the offending supermarkets by boycotting stores on sundays. a strategy they hope will hit them where it hurts most. lucia newman. al jazeera, santiago. >> after spending 43 years in solitary confinement one of america's longest serving prisoners has been released. twice overturned yet he still remains in custody. prison officials say he was kept in isolation because of his ties with the black panther movement. jonathan martin reports. >> on his 69th birthday, albert
1:27 pm
woodfox would walk out of the entrenchary a free man. woodfox had been convicted twice for murder of a prison guard. both convictions were overturned on appeal. last summer a judge ordered wo woodfox's release. his release comes after the state dropped the threat of sub jacketing him to a third murder trial. in turn woodfox pleaded no contest to lesser charges. he said in a statement: >> woodfox was one of the stalled angola three. he along with robert king and
1:28 pm
herman wallace would spend long stretches in solitary in any goal la. many of the supporters believed that the men were political prisoners being held for their involvement with the black panthers and because they fought for better prison conditions. >> they were the scapegoats. there was opportunity. but the president administration to continue and to destroy the black panther movement. >> in a statement friday, woo woodfox thanked herman wallace and robert king for their support. king was released in 2001. wallace was released in 2013 after more than 30 years in solitary confinement. he died two days later. woodfox's attorney said friday albert survived the extreme and cruel punishment of 40 plus years in solitary confinement because of his extraordinary strength and character. these inhumane practices must stop. jonathan martin, al jazeera, new orleans. >> still to come on action,
1:29 pm
david cameron names the day that britain will vote whether to leave the european union. plus... >> barack obama is criticized for staying away from the funeral of supreme court justice antonin scalia. and in sport it's all down hill from here. skier lindsey vonn is back on top of the world.
1:30 pm
1:31 pm
1:32 pm
>> welcome back. the reminder of the top stories on al jazeera. uganda's president museveni has won the election extending his 30-year rule. there have been allegations of vote rigging. the pacific country of fiji has declared a state of emergency after being battered by one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the southern
1:33 pm
hemisphere. and opposition groups say they'll agree to the cease-fire only if russia stops bombing the country. prime minister david cameron agreed a new deal with european leaders late on friday which included a special status if the u.k. remains a member. it has caused division in the party. cameron said that britain will be stronger and safer if it remains in the e.u. >> our plan for europe gives you us the best of both worlds. it underlines our special status through families across yet all the benefits of being in the european union including more
1:34 pm
jobs, prices, and greater security. but the special status means that they're out of those parts of europe that do not work for us. we'll never be part of the euro. never be part of the no borders area or european army or e.u. super state. >> dominic kane has more now from downing street. >> a key concern for david cameron now will be what kind of solitairety will be given by his cabinet colleagues. we know that there are some members of his cabinet who will be campaigning for the u.k. to leave the europe piano union. while there are some on the government side, there are some who are staunchly with david cameron, the question will be how many members of the government will likewise be staunchly pro his plan, his deal
1:35 pm
from bruceelels, then there is the united king independence party. the party which has greeted the deal with disdain and said that they don't believe this speech that concerns very large group in the electorate. the question will be whether the two sides of this campaign will be able to fight the campaign they want and we'll know the answer in 124 days time. >> let's get more on this now joining us in studio, a policy analyst for europe, and a nonpartisan think tank here. you're not going to tell us whether you think the u.k. should stay in or out, but let's talk about the issues because david come ron certainly does think that the u.k. should stay in the e.u. do you think what will be pushed in the next few months, economy, diplomacy, security, what do you think? >> it's interesting to hear the tenor of david com cameron has
1:36 pm
changed. he has been technical and going over the deal, and then when that deal is confirmed it will be a mixture of all the things you just mentioned. it be economic prosperity, security of britain and a stronger e.u. and also it's going to be by british identity, where do they see themselves in the world. cameron is speaking very differently now. the deal has been done and the campaign has started. >> we're not going to hear about much else in the u.k. but it's been quite shocking how many so many people don't know many of the issues. how do you think that the prime minister is going to manage if he is able to manage to engage people or is this a referendum about patriotism? this is to do with structural reform of the e.u. how does the
1:37 pm
relationship between the eurozone countries and the non-eurozone countries work. this is in interest to have save guards in that area. but again coming back to the campaign it's about the secured special concessions, security britain status and the fact they don't have to join in to ever closer unions. it's the first time that any e.u. country has opted in on this. they don't have to join the euro and as he says, we have all the good bits. the best of both worlds. >> they're not part of the euro, for example. since the eurozone crisis started. a lot of the southern e.u. countries have very strong anti-e.u. sentiments. at this moment in time how risky do you think it is if the u.k. does leave, it leads the break up of the e.u. >> one can see the entire
1:38 pm
british reform agenda as a form of whistle blowing. they're the first to say look, something is not working in the structure of the e.u and we want to change how things are done. a lot of things on the agenda have valid. something needs to change. these are issues that a lot of other european leaders, they may not stand up and say in public, but in secret they tell cameron we agree with you. thank you for doing these changes. some european leaders have come out and said that this thing that cameron got in his deal we want adapted as well. but if the u.k. were to leave, of course, that's a symbolic blow for the e.u. because in a club where someone always wanted to join. and then of course those parties who want to leave from other european country would see in a as a way to follow. >> such a key, strong country as well. we'll be talking about it many, many times i'm sure. >> well european leaders in
1:39 pm
brussels have been looking for ways look for ways to block the referendum unless they keep their borders open. well, many refugees arriving in greece are children who don't have a guardian. up to 10,000 have now disafeared over the past two years. we spoke to teenagers about the risks that they face on their journey. >> they set off from the homelands with their teenage dreams of a better life. inspired by the images they've seen of refugees streaming across europe. but soon a harsh reality sets in. >> i went to macedonia five times. reached serbia once. but each time i was sent back to greece. >> these days only syrians, afghans and iraqis are allowed to continue their journey.
1:40 pm
europe remains closed to other nationals who are regarded as economic migrants, not refugees. so these boys are now stranded on the greek side of the border. unprotected and vulnerable to criminal gangs and smuggler rings. many want to remain anonymous telling us their stories but not their names. >> there were four of us. we were trying to cross. we found guys in front of us. we ran. our friend is 15, the youngest among us. he was caught. they took him to a house like this one. there were three. they raped him. we saw it with our own eyes. we through stones at them but they pulled knives so we escaped and left him behind. >> one-third of those landing on the shores are children but no one knows exactly how many of them are traveling alone.
1:41 pm
>> they were traveling alone with adults or with unknown people we have minors who were alone. >> that's the story of a boy who escaped from the town of sinjar in northern iraq hoping to reach his family in germany. he was lucky enough to end up in a shelter here in greece. >> it's very scary. you never know what a smuggler will do to you. he can take you to the forest, rob, rape or kill you. it happens, and it will continue. some of my friends worked hard to get money. they were robbed and beaten, and now they've disappeared. >> ahmed, a 16-year-old algerian said he lost contact with his travel companions. they have gone silent on social media. it's a story that many told us. still, despite the risks these young travelers will keep on trying to sneak across borders
1:42 pm
walking undercover of darkness and hoping that by daybreak they will be safe and one step closer to their destination. al jazeera, on the greek-macedonian border. >> nationalist demonstrate necessary ukraine have vandalized two russian banks in the capital. the protesters threw rocks through the windows through the bank building as well as offices belonging to the country's richest man. the demonstrations came as tens of thousands of day of the heaven, it resulted in the ousting of ukraine's former pro-russian president. the funeral has taken place in washington for supreme court justice antonin scalia whose protest has sparked a political row over who will succeed hip. thousands of people including vice president joe biden was there. president obama had been criticized by republicans for
1:43 pm
not attending but he did pay tribute at the supreme court on friday. andy gallagher joins us live from washington, d.c. andy, like many funerals, this is a moment to commemorate antonin scalia's life but it also has a political dimension. >> it does, indeed. justice scalia was a polarizing figure on his 30 years on the supreme court. but he garnered a great deal of respect from those who had completely opposing opinions. today was a celebration of his life and of his faith. it was a private occasion mostly behind closed doors here at the basilica, but clearly the absence of justice can leah from the supreme court leaves eight supreme court judges who are split down the middle and the political firestorm will play out in the coming months, possibly beyond the presidential
1:44 pm
election in november. >> talk us through what the next steps would be, and you mentioned that it may actually be after the election in november. what does that depend on? >> well, under the constitution the president has a right to name the successor to justice scalia. normally that takes 60 days. but congress said they will block it. they want president obama to wait until the next president is sworn in. obviously they hope it's a republican. but this makes the election as much by the executive as the judiciary. the judiciary are appointed for life, and this person who will replace justice scalia will hold a very important position voting on incidental gas station, environment, al all part of president obama's legacy.
1:45 pm
how it will play out over the next few months anyone will guess. president obama will perhaps appoint a moderate someone who has been pre-approved by congress but certainly the republicans want him to hold off for now. both sides here know how important this appointee is, and how important the next supreme court justice's role will be in the future of this country. >> andy gallagher, thank you. protests by members of the agriculture community in india has gone into a second day with five people dead and 80 injured. they want more benefits, including better access to government jobs. india's constitution has a system that helps people from castes that traditionally face discrimination. we're in india where a curfew is in place. >> this is connecting the north of india to the capital.
1:46 pm
further down protesters have set up their own blocks. they're stopping carts, smashing windows and slashing tires. but it's not as violent as what is going on further in the state where there are thousands of troops and military forces trying to insure calm. many of the protest areas are under curfew, but protesters say they will continue until they get what they want. >> we want the community to get reservation status. we're prepared to battle to the end for this. >> they want status that will entitle them to a portion of government jobs and education in institutions. previous attempts have been turned down by the supreme court. this is traditionally a farming community. they're well represented in the government and in politics, and they're not necessarily seen as under privileged. >> now here is some rare news. some good news for the people of kabul. afghan authorities say full

pakistan continues to give her hope. >> the may i seeing thing is are those who continue to invade in the face offed. >> freedom of speech does not come naturally to pakistan and other parts of south asia. in new delhi, india, many have been traveling abroad because of the clamp down by the government. >> india and pakistan are bigger bigger powers in inside, and localized governments can only clamp the situation down to a certain point. >> the line up includes book launches, exhibition and
1:49 pm
performances as well as sessions among foreign delegates. they say this is a rare treat because alerts have meant fewer public gatherings and open discussions. they say it's crucial to stand up to fear and intimidation. >> we defy the ideology of taliban. all the more reason we keep overcoming any challenges that emanate from the stand point of security because there is no turning back for us. >> tens of thousands are expected to attend the yearly event that has become part of the cultural calendar. this year's festival was almost shut down because of a security alert. similar events have taken place in other pakistani cities. with security improving, artists and arthur arrest authors are beginning to reclaim their spaces. >> coming up in sport after the break it's a rocky road at the tour of oman.

1:52 pm
lead at the top of the table. that's putting plenty of pressure on this team, real madrid, who were in a pretty playful mood earlier. >> i'm happy to be here. i knew it was a difficult position and it's all new for me, but i also know that the most important thing for us, for real madrid is getting points. we're doing that. that's it. we just need to keep doing our best, training well and thinking that none of this is going to be easy for us no matter what. >> barcelona continues to lead the way, a nine-point cushion at the top, and fourth place is taken up by villarreal. and real madrid are in third.

[ laughing ] and honestly, am i nervous or angry, it doesn't change the result. i would be if it could change the result. but i think it's not what we planned. but it's how you respond. and how you find a solution to what you face now. we have to go to ireland and qualify. >> three confirmed results so far. one game on the go at the moment. second tea tier, reading beats west brom. watford and everton have taken the lead against bournemouth with ten minutes left in that game.

1:55 pm
