  1. When Museveni says Uganda is still backward he has a point. There are people filing such motions of life presidency and he looks at them as total idiots with poor self esteem who want favor from him. With several such people in influential positions, he surely can rule till death and the country will stay backward. Same old ideas , patronage, muzzling of opponents, joblessness and land grabs from the poor with no compensation and list goes on.
