Former Uganda VP castigates government for corruption

Former Ugandan Vice President Gilbert Bukenya held a press conference today to say the country’s 2016 presidential election is already rigged – and he’s going to do something about it. He declared his intent to run for office in May. Since he was fired by President Museveni in 2011, the two NRM party members have had a bitter ongoing feud.
The entrance to the Ugandan Parliament building has an elaborately hand-carved wooden wall.
About 18 members of the Ugandan media – and me – packed the small office of former Vice President Gilbert Bukenya today after a hastily called press conference. Bukenya, who plans to run for the presidency in 2016, again decried corruption by the ruling party of which he is a member.
