KAMPALA, Feb 16 : Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni once said leaders who "overstayed" in power were the root of Africa's problems, but 30 years later he is aiming for a fifth term.
The 71-year old former rebel leader seized power in 1986, ending years of brutal and murderous rule under Idi Amin and Milton Obote.
"Those who say, 'let him go, let him go', they need to know that this is not the right time," Museveni said at a recent campaign rally held ahead of the February 18 election he is expected to win.
"This old man who has saved the country, how do you want him to go? How can I go out of a banana plantation I have planted that has started bearing fruits?"     ?AFP
