Will Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni serve another term?
February 18, 2016
On Thursday, Ugandans will vote for a new president, in what many say will be the closest-run election in years. Most predict Museveni will win again.
But young Ugandans make up a massive 75 percent of the population and many are unhappy. They are struggling to overcome one of Africa’s highest unemployment rates. And that discontent could deprive the president of a majority and force him into his first ever runoff.
Museveni is not the only leader to cling to power in Africa. Other long-serving presidents across the continent are making an effort to stay in power.
So, what does that mean for democratic transition in Africa?
