Yoweri Museveni

Yoweri Museveni is a Ugandan politician who has been President of the African country since January 29, 1986.

Museveni spearheaded uprisings that have ousted Idi Amin and Milton Obote out of power.

Museveni has been lauded as running a democratic nation when in fact, Uganda is anything but.

The Ugandan leader has instituted an amendment which has done away with the presidential age limit and term limits – all in an attempt for him to stay in power for as long as possible. He also responsible for instituting the social media and mobile money tax which is earning a killing – at the expense of the citizens of Uganda.
