    President Museveni does not see any equals amongst African leaders – at least he didn’t see any in 2009 – diplomatic cables released by whistleblower website, WikiLeaks, have revealed.
    The cables from the US Embassy in Kampala, sent to the US State Department by Ambassador Jerry Lanier, also show that Museveni was disappointed by Ghanaian president, John Kufuor.
    According to the cables authored in 2009, Museveni is preoccupied with African leadership issues.
    “He looks around at his fellow African heads of state and sees no equals; no one of his intellect, vision, drive, and few of his longevity,” the cables read.
    They also reveal that Museveni was disappointed that former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo’s third term effort was “thwarted, because his successor, Shehu Yar’Adua, is not strong enough to demonstrate leadership on African issues”.
    Yar’Adua died in 2010 after a long illness. Obasanjo stealthily visited Museveni shortly before the debate on whether or not the Nigerian constitution should be amended to allow him run for a third term.
    He attempted extending money to legislators, but unlike in Uganda where it paid off, the Nigerian legislators returned his money. Museveni was probably disappointed that the same trick could not bear fruit for Obasanjo.

    African leaders never fail to surprise me. WTF wrong with Museveni? Haitonishangaza siku Museveni atakapompendekeza mtoto wake au ndugu yake kurithi Urais wa Uganda. Na Waganda watakuwa sambamba kukubaliana na mapendekezo ya Museveni.
