Museveni Reveals Interest in Continued Presidency

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni revealed his interest in staying the head of state in Uganda.

This was durind the Inter-Party Organization for Dialogue held at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

According to President Museveni, he is not about to leave power until the financial situation in Uganda improves and Africa as a whole is at a better place.

The head of state who attended the summit as the National Resistance Movement Chairperson disclosed this while answering to Democratic Party’s president Norbert Mao who advised him to retire and partake in a peaceful handover of power.

“I hear people like Mao talking about transition; how they would like to sit in the audience and see Museveni handing over power. That is the most important thing for him. I do not think that is the most important and it is good he is saying that,” asserted Museveni.

He added that he joined politics to fight for prosperity and strategic security of Africa which suffered at the hands of colonialists who defeated traditional chiefs and kings who had no sufficient defensive mechanisms.

The summit had in attendance four political parties which are National Resistance Movement (NRM), Uganda Peoples Congress (UPC), Justice Forum (Jeema) and Democratic Party (DP).
