More People Show Up Seeking to Take Reins of Power From Museveni

More than 40 individuals have so far communicated their intensions to vie for Uganda's presidency, according to Jotham Taremwa, spokesperson for the electoral commission. Despite concerns about the electoral commission's plan for virtual campaigns, the number of presidential aspirants for Uganda's 2021 election continues to grow. The latest entrant is former army commander Maj-Gen Mugisha Muntu who recently founded a new party after leaving the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).
