Ugandan Pres

President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, is preparing to run for president yet again, even after 30 years in office.

Museveni, 70, picked up presidential nomination forms on July 31st, indicating that he would like to continue ruling for at least five more years, Quartz Africa reports.

“The historicals [party leaders] agreed that as a way forward, I come and pick these nominations forms and I offer myself for the position of party chairman and NRM presidential candidate for the period 2015-2021,” he said to his supporters.

The report further states:

Museveni secured the presidency through a coup three decades ago, and has been re-elected three times since 1996. A recent poll suggests that 71% of Ugandans will vote for him again for another term, which will move him up the ranking table of Africa’s longest serving leaders.

    I am Ugandan and I will tell you this, those statistics are gotten from people who are within the party and have gained directly through stealing That has all happened under his watch simply because they are his tribesmen. And when it comes to voting this guy steals votes like crazy. He z just an old man looking to die in power so that he doesn’t answer to the ICC for his crimes. He tried to front his son as the next in line and when the other comrades of his said no, he put them in prison and others went into exile fearing for their lives
