Uganda: March 24, 2005


While Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni has been above average (by African standards) in running the country, the enthusiasm for democracy sweeping the planet has arrived. There was an anti-Museveni demonstration in the capital. The first such event in a long time. Museveni, for all his good habits, does not allow opposition political parties to operate freely. The current constitution only allows him two terms as president. Museveni is trying to get the constitution changed to allow him to be president-for-life.
