Uganda Government News: Museveni vows to win 2011 polls

The president of the third East African Community's biggest country, Gen. Yoweri Museveni has vowed to win the country's general elections scheduled for February 2011.
The campaigns for the fourth presidential elections in Uganda since 1986 kick off on October 25th, 2010 amidst political intimidation, bribery and politically motivated arrests.

President Museveni has ruled Uganda since 1986. Over 40 people have picked nomination forms to participate in 2011 presidential polls. They include Norbert Mao of the Democratic Party, Bidandi Sali of the Peoples Progressive Party and Col. Kiiza Besigye of Forum for Democratic Change. Museveni has said the people fighting to replace him are still all weak and have no capacity to do so. The incumbent president also advises contestants to avoid using ethnically divisive rhetoric language that could drive the country back to reign of terror.
