National elections are going on in Uganda today and I thought it a good excuse to take a break from the endless presidential campaigning in the US.
Here is long-time President/dictator Museveni campaigning in his signature color:
even though there seems little chance that he could lose the election, a president for life like Museveni takes no chances! He has blacked out social media today because some Ugandans were “‘misusing’ their rights.” I guess their rights to social media are determined by the state and anti-Museveni rhetoric is not appreciated.
Here are some of my favorite campaign posters:
why is this guy kneeling and clapping? or maybe he is praying? What he is trying to convey?
good to know that this woman will protect us in case of aliens attack. I wonder what her credentials are that would support this claim?
Hmm, this candidate looks suspiciously like Rihanna.
I’m curious whether any of these three get elected. Will supporters of the Rihanna be disappointed when they meet the real candidate?
h/t to Kenyan Facts (@KResearcher) for photos of these great campaign posters
