Ladies and Gentlemen. A human group that must survive has to ensure its security and prosperity.  This is the acid test to which all political, cultural, economic and social systems must be subjected to in order to determine their usefulness to society. 

Article by H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni President of the Republic of Uganda on election rigging in Uganda 1961 – 2014

25th May 2014
As soon as the Universal elective processes were introduced in Uganda, the shallow opportunists immediately hatched two schemes of winning power against the democratic phenomena. One scheme was sectarianism and the other was election rigging. Both result in the negating of the democratic process because they distort the results of the process.

Please do not indulge in what is not worthy before God-President Museveni’s Easter message on April 21, 2014

Maama Janet and I joined other Christians for Easter prayers at St. Mathew Cathedral Kyamate in Ntungamo district.

President Museveni's remarks before handing over Ebyaffe to Buganda Kingdom's delegation on April 15, 2014, at State House Entebbe.

16th April 2014
When you sing the Buganda Anthem and the National Anthem, remember to sing the East African anthem. 'Tulina okusakira abantu baffe.’ We shouldn't be only Baganda or Ugandans but Africans. That is where our future lies. These properties were contentious because in the 1995 constitution and 1993 traditional leaders act, we restored cultural institutions which were cultural, not administrative, not political.

President Museveni's statement upon signing the anti-homosexuality bill, 24th February 2014, State House Entebbe

24th February 2014
It seems the topic of homosexuals was provoked by the arrogant and careless Western groups that are fond of coming into our schools and recruiting young children into homosexuality and lesbianism, just as they carelessly handle other issues concerning Africa. Initially, I did not pay much attention to it because I was busy with the immediate issues of defence, security, electricity, the roads, the railways, factories, modernization of...

President Y K Museveni's Response to H.E. Barack Obama's statement on Homosexuality.

22nd February 2014

Obama’s statement, let me, again, put on record my views on the issue of homo-sexuals (ebitiingwa, bisiyaga in some of our dialects). Right from the beginning of this debate, my views were as follows:
