President Yoweri Museveni has again released another video of him making 40 push-ups. The president was challenging his grandson and daughters who also appeared in the same video making push-ups.
“After work last night, I challenged my Bazukulu (grandsons and daughters) to an indoor work-out. We did forty push-ups. Just like I have always advised, even at your own home, you can stay safe, and remain fit and healthy.” Museveni said on social media.
According to political analysts, the president is sending out a loud message to Ugandans and his political opponents that he is feet enough to run the country for another five years if trusted and voted for in the coming 2021 general elections.
Museveni’s video comes at a time the executive director of Research World International Ltd Patrick Wakida had just released a survey indicating that the incumbent is the most wanted person to lead the country for life.
Wakida said 25 per cent of Ugandans want Museveni to lead for life and 21 per cent saying no, 15 per cent saying he should not even stand in the 2121 elections and 19 per cent saying he should stand in 2026.
The survey indicated that Kyadondo east MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine leads as the best person to replace President Museveni when he retires. Kizza Besigye comes second and Muhoozi Kainerugaba third-best.
It also indicated that he is the leading person to take the 2021 general elections with 47 per cent, Bobi Wine 22 per cent, Kizza Besigye 17 per cent among others.
In tandem, forum for democratic change (FDC) spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda dismissed the survey saying that it is peddled at popularizing the incumbent.
“Each time there is an election, there will be a poll to show Museveni is leading. I came to this event because I was invited. In my opinion, these figures are contradictory.” He said
Semujju said the report helps because it gives you figures, whether you believe or not. “I don’t believe in the figures.” he added.
