Uganda risks US sanctions, regime survival as youth revolt grows

Uganda’s longtime leader, 73-year old President Yoweri Museveni has survived many previous political challenges. However he may have finally met his match in the country’s new charismatic opposition leader, 36-year old Robert Ssentamu (aka ‘Bobi Wine’), a popular musician turned political activist and parliamentarian. Much like Egypt’s former President Hosni Mubarak, a long time US security ally, who grew increasingly tone-deaf to the demands of the youth, and sought to impose his son as successor, Museveni’s recent bloody response to a youth riot may not only see his regime possibly sanctioned under the new global US Magnitsky Act, but ultimately fall to a popular youth revolt much like happened to Mubarak in Egypt. A review of all major international commercial deals enacted during the Museveni era will almost assuredly occur under a new government. (Note Attached)
