The current president of Uganda, H.E Yoweri Museveni came to power in 1986 through the use of a gun and has stayed in power for 27 years who has often conducted elections of which he merges the winner.

M7 is now under pressure from various politicians and activists to emulate several leaders and resign to give chance to other able bodies to run the presidency of the country but this seems to be just a myth.

Last year, the Catholic Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga said the best present Uganda expects from President Kaguta Museveni is a peaceful handing over of power.


Early this week, Pope Benedict XIV surprised the world when he announced his resignation which will be effected on February 28.

The Pope said he no longer had the mental and physical strength to cope with the demands of his ministry.

Of recent, the former president of the Forum for Democratic Change, Col. Kiiza Besigye resigned from being the president6 of the party and gave a chance to his colleagues to run the leadership of the party.

The former Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Uganda, Henry Luke Orombi announced his intention to leave his post earlier than expected, in December 2012 desiring to focus on the ministry of preaching.

From that time many Ugandans and politicians have asked the president to resign and also focus on his farm in Lwakitura sighting reasons ranging from age and incompetence.

But can this ever happen?

Very many people have been approached to answer this question including journalists and politicians and it appears as though Ugandans don’t have a chance to ever see President Museveni stand and delcear that he is retiring from his office.

The President, Forum for Integrity in Leadership, Emmanuel Tumusiime says, M7 a man who has continually violated the constitution can never resign as the Pope did.

“The removal of the term limits is a clear indication that the man is still greedy for power and Uganda should never expect him to resign but rather join efforts to push him in 2016.”

Will Museveni stand for presidency in 2016? To some Ugandans this is still a question of concern but to others it’s clear and are prepared to fight him out of power.

The UPC Ass. Spokes Person, Emmanuel Rukundo says Ugandans should stand in support of the UPC party to push the dictator out of power but should never wait for his resignation.

“I really doubt if he could ever resign because this is a man who came to power by means of arms and he only listens to the sound of the gun.” He said.

Rukundo added that there is surely a need for Museveni to resign from power since the Pope who was running a better system of governance found it necessary to resign after discovering that he was no longer competent.

The DP Acting Publicity Secretary, Kenneth Paul Kakande early this week said the best thing M7 should do is to resign given that he is aging and has reached a point of signing documents and agreements without being aware of the implications.

Kakande said Uganda needs a more vibrant president and now is the time for Museveni to acknowledge nature.

Of recent, the Catholic Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga said the best present Uganda expects from President Kaguta Museveni is a peaceful handing over of power.

However, there is still hope among some Ugandans that the president might at the end retire from his office.

Mugabo Ballack, a report from Sun FM says since the leading opposition leader, Kiiza Besigye resigned from the leadership of FDC, M7 might find it easier to resign.

The long a waited time by all Ugandans is when they will see a new president swearing in for power through peaceful democratic means.
