Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has told Ugandans that he is not a “servant” but a “political fighter”.
The 72-year-old, who was leading celebrations to mark 31 years since his National Resistance Movement party took power in the East African nation at Masindi Golf club in western Uganda, said he was not anyone’s employee:
I am just a freedom fighter fighting for myself and [my] beliefs. I am not an employee . If anybody thinks he gave me a job, he is deceiving himself. I am just a freedom fighter whom you thought would help you also.”
