A former Ugandan vice president has called upon the country’s opposition to form a united front to fight next year’s general election in order to bring to an end 30 years of Yoweri Museveni’s presidency.
Prof Gilbert Bukenya who served the country for eight years (May 2003-May 2011), remains the second longest serving vice president of Uganda after Dr Specioza Kazibwe (1994-2003). At a press conference in Kampala, he argued that once the opposition succeeds in removing Museveni from power, they should form a coalition government that would address President Museveni’s ‘mischief’ with all Ugandans both in the country and those in the Diaspora who have lost love for Uganda because of different issues.
A professor of medicine, Bukenya warned that President Museveni (70) looks like he is suffering from dementia, exhibiting symptoms like being easily forgetful and severe mental incapacitation as his brain at his age receives little blood that cannot ably sustain the country’s demands which would affect the country at large.
