KAMPALA UGANDA Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has called for his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta to take advantage of his tyranny of numbers in parliament, change the constitution and extend his presidential term limit.
Museveni was speaking when he took his campaign to retain the highest political seat in the land to Kabale district.
Kagame Museveni also said there is nothing wrong with Kagame extending his tenure given that he has done a lot for Rwanda since he picked it from the genocide. He also equated Kagame to himself saying he rescued Uganda from the hands of a dangerous dictator.
“Uhuru has a very huge advantage of taking the people of Kenya to the right direction. Sincerely speaking, he cannot hand over power to people like Raila. AAt the moment, he is the only man fit for that job and nobody else can do better than him just like myself here in Uganda” Said Museveni.
“Uhuru’s party Jubilee has the majority in parliament and can do something to help Uhuru serve the people of Kenya for another 2, 3, or even 4 terms as a President. He is young and energetic with good plans for the people of Kenya. Forget about Raila and his group of conmen because they cannot take Kenyans anywhere”
“Let me tell you a secret my people, the current African Presidents are the best gifts God has given the people of Africa. Don’t listen to the Wazungu because they are jealous of us” Concluded Museveni as almost everyone in attendance seemed unhappy with his remarks.
Political analysts have however indicated that Museveni wants to infect the rest of the leaders with dictatorship just like he did to Kagame and Kabila.
Kenyan opposition chief is yet to respond.
Museveni is very keen on winning Kigezi region since it’s the home area of his rival John Patrick Amama Mbabazi.
Kigezi is an NRM stronghold, considering that the ruling party defeated the opposition by a wide margin in the last three elections.
However, Museveni would also work hard to woo the hearts of those who were hurt by the mistreatment of Mbabazi by police and other security organs.
In January 2015, Museveni told a huge gathering at Kabale municipal stadium he would not allow emishega (wolves) to rule Uganda.
He also cautioned against plans to topple him using NRM structures, a veiled reference for Mbabazi who was accused of using clandestine methods to take power.
Some of the top politicians in the area expected to accompany Museveni at his rallies include Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda, State Minister for Planning David Bahati, MP Banyenzaki and business tycoons among others.
The Kabale tour comes high on the heels of successful campaign tours in Kisoro where thousands thronged Museveni’s rallies.
Museveni has since declared 2016, a year of prosperity and building a strong foundation to secure Uganda’s future.
