Yoweri Museveni armed and ready for 2011 elections

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni, the prez behind the Hang the Gays bill, will stand for re-election in July 2011. His political challenger in 2006, Kizza Besigye, spent months prior to the election in prison while Museveni's soldiers fired on his supporters in Kampala. Museveni is also a key U.S. ally, with these soldiers fighting in U.S./Allied interest in Somalia.

Peter Otika, a Ugandan exile in the U.S., has created a Uganda Watch blog to report on events leading up to Uganda's 2011 election.
