Yoweri Museveni, Uganda’s President for the past 26 years,
and his rival presidential candidate, for the third time,
Dr. Kizza Besigye.

Ugandans began voting on Friday, February 18th, with the country’s Daily Monitor reporting that there are 140,000 dead people, 5000 people 110 years and older, and half a million foreigners on the rolls.

“The dead people might be so appalled,” said Ugandan American Newspaper Editor Milton Allimadi, that they might vote for the opposition this time.

Dr. Kizza Besigye urged any Ugandans selling their votes to Museveni and the NRM to eat the money, get a good meal, because it’s their money; not anybody else’s money. “Eat it,” he said, “and then go and vote against the thieves.”
