The wind of change that has swept the East African countries has finally landed in the Pearl Of Africa, Uganda.

This comes with the swift declaration from the well-decorated 1982 bush war Hero H.E the president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta that by 2036 he will retire from politics.

The 75-year-old General has followed his fellow presidents Kagame of Rwanda, Magufuli of Tanzania and Nkurunziza of Burundi.

It Should be noted by the time Museveni expects to retire who would have ruled Uganda for 51 years with total presidential terms of close 8 terms.

It is said that he made this decision because his vision for the country will be obscured by poor vision as a result of old age, citing that at this time he would rather live comfortably at his farm.

Museveni who is currently 75 years, is widely expected to seek re-election in 2021 and after this, there will be two elections (2026 and 2031) for which he still hopes to contest, assuming he still has the energy.
