“Am not leaving Power any time Now” Museveni Laughs on as other Presidents reject calls to extend their rule

The National Resistance Movement Chairman also the Current President of Uganda H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed that he can not relinquish or Leave power at this moment.

Museveni further revealed the reason behind him not leaving power is because all he “planted has started bearing fruits”

“Those who say, let him go, let him go, they need to know that this is not the right time. 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?” Mr. Museveni asked

Museveni was speaking out to a crowd that had come to welcome him at Rwashamaire Town in Kajara County in Ntungamo district.

Museveni said that it’s only the greedy and impatient people telling him to quit the presidency and leave Uganda in a desperate situation.

He said while there are many voices telling him to leave power, but he looks at Uganda as being in the middle of a forest and needs him to find a path for the country to come out.

“We can’t be in the middle of a forest and want the old man to go. This is not right. We must concentrate on development, my time will come and I will go. I don’t fear to go because I have where to go, but we must first see where we go,” he added.

Rwanda’s Kagame
