President Yoweri Museveni's Monthly Salary Range In Kenyan Shillings
Nov. 27, 2020
President Yoweri Museveni has called his leading critic, musician-turned-politician, Bobi Wine, an "enemy of the country's prosperity".
President Museveni said he still had unfinished business in Uganda as president and would only leave if asked to do so by his National Resistance Movement (NRM) party.
Political change is a complicated subject in Uganda. Young and educated opposition supporters yearn for a post-Museveni era. The youth are a growing piece of the demographic pie.
The ability to travel easily and improved media access means that they are no longer a small and irrelevant constituency confined to Kampala. Increasingly, young opposition supporters are present and active in regional municipalities around the country. They are also well networked in the countryside and are carrying their anti-Museveni message to the most remote areas.
A lot of people have been wondering how much he takes home every month. This is because, the presidents are said to be the highest paid people in the whole world. Aside from there own Salary, they get other things like free food, transportation, houses, cars and upkeep money.
Museveni revealed that he gets a monthly salary of UGX3.6 Million which is about Ksh 100,000 but over the years during his reign he has managed to amass to one of the richest presidents in Africa. This is because, he doesn't use his money and it has accumulated to 2.5 billion. That may seem like a small amount of money but in the country it is a lot.
The latest protests in Uganda are an indication that people are sick and tired of President Yoweri Museveni's insatiable appetite for power. But the ex-guerilla fighter is not going anywhere, writes DW's Daniel Gakuba.
As the grieving families were still burying their loved ones who were gunned down in the streets of Kampala, 76-year-old President Yoweri Museveni — a former guerilla commander — running for the sixth term, had no calming words to unite his nation.
According to the official report by the Uganda police pathologist, up to now, at least 50 people are reported to have died in last week's widespread chaos that followed the arrest of Bobi Wine. Other sources say the number of casualties could be higher.
