Parties start again in Uganda

Nineteen years ago Ugandan President Ypweri Museveni seized power in Uganda and imposed a single political party on the country. In a recent referendum which he endorsed other political parties can now exist freely, the first time since 1986.

Critics are arguing that this is to appease donors and solicit more money from donor nations. Regardless of the motives behind the move to permit more political parties this is a step for improvement for the people of Uganda.
