The reigning president of Uganda, Bwana Yoweri Museveni will in 2021 run for office again.
Museveni expressed his willingness and urge to help the people of Uganda in a move that will see him extend his charge at the top to over four decades.
“I’m therefore very pleased with your confidence in me and since I am still very able and I happen to be among the most conversant with this journey, I happily agree to serve,” said the President, fetching a thunderous applause from the legislators who nominated him unanimously on Sunday.
Museveni has been president of Uganda for a record 33 years.
The 2021 elections will see Museveni battle it out with 37 year old MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
Another contestant that Museveni faces is all time foe Kizza Besigye.
Besigye, 62 years old, has faced Museveni in the 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016 elections but lost on all occasions.
