No Change in Uganda – Africa is not surprised

17 January 2021

Yoweri Museveni has been president of Uganda since 1986.

He “won” the elections again this week in 2021.

While African Union leaders were impotent in ending Uganda’s dictatorial regime, democracy suffers.

Uganda’s 2021 elections were marred by violence, repression of online communication and stifling of opposition voices.

At one point Museveni had the nation’s Internet shut down.

Twitter complained.

Bobi Wine tried to reverse the dictatorship but was unsuccessful.

The brutal force of the army was too strong.

Africa’s political culture of dictatorial regimes and family networks is far from over.

The poor of the continent and the globe see how politicians treat human beings.
