Uganda's 'dictator in a suit' holds power, but at what cost?

Ugandan police arrest main opposition leader Kizza Besigye, outside his home in Kasangati, a Kampala suburbKampala (AFP) – “In the past you could get away with imprisoning and killing everyone,” said Ugandan lawyer and poet Kabumba Busingye. Under Idi Amin, 1970s Uganda was a rough dictatorship ruled with brutal buffoonery, but Yoweri Museveni, a former rebel who helped overthrow Amin and his successor to seize power in 1986, is a “sophisticated dictator in a suit” said Busingye. Museveni swept to his fifth election victory this month with 61 percent of the vote.
