Museveni, who came to power in 1986, made the remarks during a televised debate late Saturday — his first ever with his presidential challengers. “The ICC is not serious, it is partisan, it is not balanced, it is not very serious,” he said, referring to The Hague based court set up in 2002 as the last resort to try war criminals and perpetrators of genocide never tried at home.
