Uganda's Museveni faces challenging new term

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Significance

Beyond the new health crisis, the new government faces multiple challenges that should make for a difficult term in office.

Impacts

  • Youth politics will remain a key area of government-opposition contestation, but Bobi Wine will hold more appeal among youth than Museveni.
  • International criticism of Uganda’s human rights record is unlikely to translate into significantly tougher action, but nor will it abate.
  • Museveni may face challenges obtaining funding for development projects from both traditional and non-traditional donors.
