Yoweri Museveni

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is a Ugandan politician, President of Uganda since 1986. Museveni was involved in rebellions that toppled notorious Ugandan leaders Idi Amin and Milton Obote before capturing power in the 80s. In the mid- to late 1990s, Museveni was celebrated by the West as part of a new generation of African leaders. During Museveni's presidency, Uganda has experienced relative peace and significant success in battling HIV/AIDS. At the same time, Uganda remains a country suffering from high levels of corruption and poverty. Museveni's presidency has been marred by involvement in the civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other Great Lakes region conflicts. Museveni was born on 15 September 1944 in Rukungiri and his family migrated to Ntungamo, Uganda Protectorate, to parents Mzee Amos Kaguta, a cattle herder, Esteri Kokundeka Nganzi, a housewife both illiterate, he is of Bahororo tribe. Museveni gets his middle name from Mzee Amos Kaguta. Kaguta is the father of Museveni's brother Caleb Akandwanaho, popularly known in Uganda as Salim Saleh, sister Violet Kajubiri.

Museveni attended Kyamate Elementary School, Mbarara High School, Ntare School. In 1967, he went to the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. There, he studied economics and political science and became a Marxist, involving himself in radical pan-African politics. While at university, he formed the University Students' African Revolutionary Front activist group and led a student delegation to FRELIMO territory in Portuguese Mozambique, where he received guerrilla training. Studying under the leftist Walter Rodney, among others, Museveni wrote a university thesis on the applicability of Frantz Fanon's ideas on revolutionary violence to post-colonial Africa; the exile forces opposed to Amin invaded Uganda from Tanzania in September 1972 and were repelled, suffering heavy losses. In October and Uganda signed the Mogadishu Agreement that denied the rebels the use of Tanzanian soil for aggression against Uganda. Museveni broke away from the mainstream opposition and formed the Front for National Salvation in 1973.

In August of the same year, he married Janet Kataha. With the overthrow of Idi Amin in 1979 in the Uganda-Tanzania War and the contested election that returned Uganda's earlier president Milton Obote to power in 1980, Museveni returned to Uganda with his supporters to gather strength in their rural strongholds in the Bantu-dominated south and south-west to form the Popular Resistance Army, they planned a rebellion against the second Obote regime and its armed forces, the Uganda National Liberation Army. The insurgency began with an attack on an army installation in the central Mubende district on 6 February 1981; the PRA merged with former president Yusufu Lule's fighting group, the Uganda Freedom Fighters, to create the National Resistance Army with its political wing, the National Resistance Movement. Two other rebel groups, the Uganda National Rescue Front and the Former Uganda National Army, engaged Obote's forces; the FUNA was formed in the West Nile sub-region from the remnants of Amin's supporters.

The NRA/NRM developed a "Ten-point Programme" for an eventual covering: democracy. The Central Intelligence Agency's World Factbook estimates that the Obote regime was responsible for more 100,000 civilian deaths across Uganda. On 27 July 1985, subfactionalism within the Uganda People's Congress government led to a successful military coup against Obote by his former army commander, Lieutenant-General Tito Okello, an Acholi. Museveni and the NRM/NRA were angry that the revolution for which they had fought for four years had been "hijacked" by the UNLA, which they viewed as having been discredited by gross human rights violations during Obote II. Despite these reservations, the NRM/NRA agreed to peace talks presided over by a Kenyan delegation headed by President Daniel arap Moi; the talks, which lasted from 26 August to 17 December, were notoriously acrimonious and the resultant ceasefire broke down immediately. The final agreement, signed in Nairobi, called for a ceasefire, demilitarisation of Kampala, integration of the NRA and government forces, absorption of the NRA leadership into the Military Council.

These conditions were never met. While involved in the peace negotiations, Museveni was courting General Mobutu Sésé Seko of Zaire to forestall the involvement of Zairean forces in support of Okello's military junta. On 20 January 1986, several hundred troops loyal to Amin were accompanied into Ugandan territory by the Zairean military; the forces intervened following secret training in Zaire and an appeal from Okello ten days previously. By 22 January, government troops in Kampala had begun to quit their posts en masse as the rebels gained ground from the south and south-west. Museveni was sworn in as president on 29 January. "This is not a mere change of guard, it is a fundamental change," said Museveni, after a ceremony conducted by British-born Chief Justice Peter Allen.
