  • “If I lose a fair election I would accept the results, of course, because Uganda is not my house. I have got my house. I will go do my own things if the view of Ugandans don’t want me to help them with their issues.”
  • Approximately 17.6 million Ugandans vote on Thursday in presidential and parliamentary elections.

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni on Wednesday said that he will concede defeat if he loses in a fair election.

Speaking during an interview with CNN, Museveni said that he will accept a fair election result because he is a democrat who accepts the will of the people.

When asked why he has stayed in power since 1986, Museveni said it was because the people of Uganda have been voting for him to remain as their president.

“If I lose a fair election I would accept the results, of course, because Uganda is not my house. I have got my house. I will go do my own things if the view of Ugandans don’t want me to help them with their issues. I will go do my personal issues very happily,” said Museveni.

Contrary to the sentiments of eternal bodies, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) presidential candidate in Thursday’s elections says that “We have been having peaceful, democratic transitions by having elections every five years.”

He attributed current Bobi Wine’s woes with security forces to the government’s effort in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

“We have saved our people from dying in big numbers from Corona. It has killed very many people in Europe. Bobi Wine is one of the people who have been defying that,” added Museveni.

Approximately 17.6 million Ugandans vote on Thursday in presidential and parliamentary elections.

Wine, running on a National Unity Party ticket, is among 10 candidates who are seeking to unseat 76-year-old Museveni, one of the longest serving presidents in Africa.

Although Museveni has been a stabilising factor in Uganda after the ruthless and brutal reigns of Milton Obote and Idi Amin, opposition supporters say that his administration has been riddled with massive corruption and nepotism.
