Museveni: If I lose fairly I will go

President Yoweri Museveni 

What you need to know:

  • At 76 -although some opponents say he is older – Mr Museveni says he is fighting fit, occasionally performing pushups before crowds and jogging in his office. 
  • Museveni studied in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in the 1960s when the university acted as a kind of revolutionary finishing school for anti-colonialists.


President Museveni Wednesday said he would "accept the results" if he lost the January 14, 2021 election.
"Uganda is not my house. If I lose election I will go to my house and do my own thing if the views of Uganda don't want me to help them with their issues...I go and deal with my personal issues very happily," Mr Museveni teld CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
President Museveni further said he deserves a shot at another five-year term partly because his government helped 80 of Uganda's current population (45 million) survive child hood diseases.
