Uganda's president was headed toward an easy victory in the nation's first direct presidential vote since independence in 1962. Yoweri Museveni, whose 10-year rule returned stability to Uganda, had 76.4% of the vote with results from 77% of the 15,600 polling stations counted. Veteran politician Paul Ssemogerere had 21.6% and professor Muhammad Mayanja just 1.9%. Ssemogerere denounced the election as invalid and said his supporters had been intimidated and harassed in western Uganda.

The news Wednesday was greeted by tens of thousands of people marching through the streets of Kampala, the capital, honking horns and chanting "No change!" But Museveni's main challenger said he will go to the courts to nullify the election, which he charged was riddled with fraud.

This country's terrible past and tenuous future met in a quiet grove of eucalyptus trees in this remote village Thursday. On one side, shattered walls, roofless shops and a mass grave for thousands of massacred civilians were mute testimony to the atrocities and brutality of Uganda's 1981-86 civil war and the murderous regimes that preceded it.
