President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni apologizes to Ugandans

Ugandans are currently in the middle of a very competitive presidential election campaign that has seen incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni take on various other candidates in the polls scheduled for this week.

Museveni’s closest challenger is popular musician cum politician Bobi Wine who has mounted a very strong challenge on president Museveni in the last few months.

However, the Government of Uganda has brewed controversy after deciding to shut off social media sites like Facebook during the country’s general election.

And in a rare move, Museveni has publicly apologized to Ugandans for the decision by his government to cut off social media during the election time. However, he explained that Ugandans should bear with the government as the move is allegedly aimed at safeguarding the election from external forces.

“I am sorry for the inconvenience to those who have been using this channel (Facebook), but we cannot tolerate this arrogance of anybody coming to decide for us who is good and who is bad,” Museveni apologized.
