Unlike the yester years whereby President Museveni has been contesting against Besigye, this time round he is set to contest against a youthful leader who doubles as a musician; Bobi Wine. As witnessed in the yester elections held in Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has been doing everything possible to see to it that he does not taste defeat.
