Ugandan prelate urges president to step down in 4 years

Catholic World News - April 09, 2012

In his Easter Sunday homily, Uganda’s leading prelate urged President Yoweri Museveni to step down when his current presidential term expires in 2016. Museveni has been in power since 1986.

“The biggest gift the president can give Ugandans is the smooth transfer of power when his term of office is over,” Archbishop Cyprian Lwanga preached. “How can you [security forces] mercilessly flog the very people who pay taxes that is then used to pay your salaries?”

The nation of 34.6 million is 44% Catholic, according to Vatican statistics.
