Uganda’s longest serving tyrant has been a formal liar all the way from the Bush war struggle. His ex commandants say he had guised as a liberator who was only after setting Uganda free from Obote rule and then hand it over to another generation. Museveni had actually pledged to only reform Uganda for just ten years between, 1986-1995, but he kept asking for another term to finish up something he hadn’t done in the previous, and the rhetoric prevailed overtime to-date. Our reporter, takes you through some of Museveni’s most famous controversial public quotes about the fate of his own leadership.
“Obote has rigged my votes and so I’m going to the bush to fight his illegitimacy” Museveni
“Africa’s problem is not poverty but leaders who over stay in power” Museveni
“I will not preside over a country where a person is killed or tortured and I don’t know who the offender is” Museveni
“This Constitution is the best in the whole world and if anyone tries to tamper with it, I’ll go back to the bush” Museveni
“I will retire next year” Museveni
“Gadaffi will attend my retirement ceremony”
“I still need your support for only this term to accomplish NRM goals” Museveni
“I will retire in 2006,” Museveni quoted by New Vision
“Uganda will be a middle income country by 2017”
“I dont need votes because I have the army and the money”
“I dont work for Ugandans, I am working for myself and my grandchildren” Museveni
“I cannot hand over power to wolves(emishega)” Museveni
“Those saying agende, they want to come and steal my oil” Museveni
“I will smash anyone trying to joke around with my throne” Museveni
“Arrest those pigs who are killing Ugandans” Museveni
“I will crash the opposition,” Museveni
“This Constitution is barring me from developing Uganda. Let’s amend it” Museveni
“There’s no money for menstrual pads for girls”
“The enkonome is pheeewwwww” Finance minister.
“There will be no opposition by 2021,” Museveni
“We shall smash everyone threatening my father’s throne. Bachwezi are indomitable” former LDU turned general.
“Every worker should contribute 10k to fight Corona virus. We are moving about with begging bowels for loans to support the economy”…..
But the most controversial and ridiculous thing was him amending the constitution in 2017 when he had decades back in 1995 pledged to defend it with his own life. Even his 1985 oath to defend the lives of Ugandans has to-date not yielded because it’s his own men in uniform mercilessly killing the citizens.
