Museveni 'may want to rule for life'

25 April 2012, 17:11

Nairobi - The party of Uganda's long-time president says it strongly opposes a bid to restore presidential term limits to the constitution.

Critics and opposition politicians said on Wednesday the ruling party's opposition to the bill is a sign President Yoweri Museveni is interested in ruling for life. The bill would limit him to seeking two more terms after his term expires in 2016.

Museveni is now one of Africa's longest-serving rulers after 26 years in power. Only four have been in power longer: Cameroon's Paul Biya, Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, Angola's Jose Eduardo dos Santos and Teodoro Obiang Nguema of Equatorial Guinea.

Museveni's party has an overwhelming majority in the national assembly.
