Ugandan President Backed To Run For Presidency For The 7th Time

The current serving President of the Republic of Uganda has been backed up to vie for the presidency coming up in 2026 for the 7th time by the National Resistance Movement (NRM) leaders.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has been in power since January 1986, has gotten another chance to be the presidential flag bearer after speculations went around that his son, General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, would follow in his footsteps when he retires in 2025.


The ruling party, NRM led by Vice President Jessica Alupo, has come out clearly to endorse President Museveni barely three years before the presidential election, which is against the constitution. The constitution states that a presidential flagbearer should be mentioned at least three months before the election.

Museveni scrapped a constitutional amendment that limited presidential terms in 2005, and later in 2017, he did away with the law that limited the age of a sitting president. These actions have accelerated his thirst for power, and he might end up in power until his death.


Speaking at a wedding celebration for NRM chairman Moses Karangwa, senior presidential advisor Miss Hadijah Namyalo said that Gen. Muhoozi is a standby generator who would follow in his father’s footsteps later, but until then, Mr. Museveni remains the candidate.

General Muhoozi, who has seen so many of his supporters excited and annoyed his critics with his actions, especially on social media tweets, became the talk of the town in the past few weeks, including his recent tweet where he claimed that he would capture the capital of Kenya, which is a neighboring country, within a few hours if given the go ahead.

Uganda will be among the top African countries with longest-serving presidents after Equatorial Guinea, led by President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogom, who has been in power since 1979, followed by Paul Biya, who is the president of Cameroon and has been in power since 1982.

Museveni is known to have reformed the country of Uganda since taking charge, even though he faced serious oppression from different opposition leaders, he never gave up. He has been accused of dictatorship, corruption, and election rigging throughout his reign.

Mr. Museveni will be the fourth longest-serving African president if re-elected in the 2026 Ugandan presidential election.
