Museveni: Fidel Castro Inspired Guerrilla Movements to Liberate Africa

President Museveni has paid a special tribute to departed former Cuban revolutionary leader, ed Fidel Castro, 90 today Saturday.
“Today, Uganda, Africa and the world have lost a very honourable, loyal and reliable friend/comrade in Fidel Castro,” said Museveni in a brief media statement.
“As a leader of the July 26th Movement, he redefined Africa’s path to self rule and eventual independence in the 1960s and 70s by supporting our liberation movements,” he added.
Castro’s success story and revolutionary credentials inspired many rebel movements in the world including Africa.
Museveni was one of the leaders of guerrilla movements that swept away dictatorial governments on the continent in the 1970s and 80s.
Cuba has since declared 9 days of mourning.
Museveni said Castro fervently fought imperialism and provided direction and counsel to majority of liberation movements on the African continent. “Fidel Castro was a friend, brother and leader. My sincere condolences to the people of the Republic of Cuba,” eulogised Museveni.
