Poor, poor, pitiful Yoweri

Awesome AP interview with another African “president for life”, Uganda’s own Yoweri Museveni.

He heads what is effectively a one-party state, has ruled for 30 years and is running for another term that will take him over the constitutionally mandated age limit for dictators (a funny concept that).

But when called out on his authoritarian ways he responded, “If anybody has been bullied, it is me.”

Asked whether he’s grooming his son to follow him into power he said, “it is not what I like, it is what my party wants and what the country needs,”

He also said that his fiefdom of 30 million people had, “so much freedom that it is almost a problem in itself.”
