If one winds back the clock back to 1986 one finds Yoweri Museveni - then a fighter, fresh from the bush - arriving to address an OAU summit.
Museveni told shocked Africa leaders to their faces that he believed they had betrayed his nation by looking the other way while some 750,000 Ugandans were killed by successive regimes. "Tyranny," he said, "is colour-blind and is no less reprehensible when it is committed by one of our own." Ugandans felt a sense of betrayal, Museveni said, that most of Africa had kept silent while tyrants killed them.
How much has really changed?
