Blurb/Shorttext:
At his swearing in speech in 1986, Museveni said: "The problem of Africa in general and Uganda, in particular, is not the people but leaders who want to overstay in power." 2012 is his 26th year in power and he's still ruling. On April 30, 2011 in an Interview with NTV in Kenya, Museveni said the problem of Africa is not the absence of presidential term limits but roads, electricity and education. Whereas Museveni in the 1980s thought that the problem of Africa was long-rule, bad governance causing human rights concerns, corruption, et cetera, he has since shifted from some of those views and has failed to fix the others. He was a poor political doctor who misdiagnosed the problem and incidentally offered wrong prescription. He saw the symptom and mistook it to be the problem. This book doesn’t look at long stay in power or corruption or bad governance or lack respect for human rights or lack of proper separation of powers as the problems of Uganda. It considers them to be just symptoms of a deeply seated problem and suggests what needs to be done to address the problem. It goes beyond the noticeable symptoms and digs to the root of the symptom-the real problem of Uganda and Africa
