Ugandan President Museveni Plans to Seek Fifth Term in 2016

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni will seek the support of his ruling National Resistance Movement party to run for a fifth term in 2016 elections, presidential spokesman Tamale Mirundi said.

“He will seek party endorsement, which he will get because of his performance,” Mirundi said today by phone from the capital, Kampala. “There is no way the party can deny him because he is a winning coach. I am sure he will be there because he hasn’t indicated that he is retiring.”
