Is Museveni’s grip on Uganda wavering?

As the dust settles in Uganda after last week’s election, not that much would appear to have changed.

After 35 years in office, Yoweri Museveni remains in power with a mandate to serve his sixth term as president.

But, as his critics point out, it is hard to ignore his age: he’s now 76. So many are right to wonder: could this be Mr. Museveni’s last dance?

And what to make of some significant blows his party was dealt in parts of Uganda?

What to make of the ministers who failed to keep their seats in parliament?

There can’t be a better time to reflect on what the future holds for Ugandans.
