About Yoweri Museveni

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is a Ugandan military officer, politician, and revolutionary who has been the country’s ninth president since 1986. 

His government is regarded as autocratic. After losing the 1980 election, Museveni launched the Ugandan Bush War, which resulted in the overthrow of Milton Obote.

Scholars have described Museveni’s rule as competitive authoritarianism or illiberal democracy. 

The press has been subject to government control. No Ugandan election has been found to be free and transparent in the last 30 years.

Since 1986.  Museveni’s presidency has been marked by an increase in anti-gay legislation and activity, involvement in the First Congo War, the Rwandan Civil War, and other African Great Lakes conflicts; the Lord’s Resistance Army insurgency in Northern Uganda, which caused a humanitarian crisis; and constitutional amendments, including the repeal of presidential term limits in 2005 and the removal of the presidential age limit in 2017.

Museveni was re-elected for a sixth term on January 16, 2021, with 58.6% of the vote, despite numerous videos and reports of ballot box stuffing, over 400 polling stations with 100% voter turnout, and human rights violations.
