    Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni says he will run for a fourth term next year.
    A statement from the president's office says Mr. Museveni announced his plans late Saturday at a conference of the ruling NRM party.

    He said he has turned in his nomination papers to be the party's chairman and presidential flag-bearer.


    Mr. Museveni has ruled Uganda since seizing power in 1986. Since the advent of elections in 1996, the President has won three five-year terms.

    He won the most recent election in 2006 with 59 percent of the vote. The opposition, led by Kizza Besigye, accused the president of rigging that poll.

    Uganda used to have presidential term limits but they were removed by parliament in 2005. The next elections are scheduled for February.

    Uchaguzi wenyewe kama ni kama huu wa akina JK, mnategemea nini- ni kwamba ana uhakika wa kushinda by hooks and crooks!
    Kama anakamata dola, na ana uwezo wa kupandisha mshahara wa wafanyakazi akiwa kwenye jukwaa la kampeni, what do you expect?
    Waafrika ndivyo tulivyo, nadhani kwa wazungu wangemkwida shati!
