Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has said that the leaders of the coup in Guinea “should get out”
On Sunday, President Yoweri Museveni condemned Guinea’s coup, calling it a “step backward.” Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said that the coup leaders should face punishment and “go.”
When questioned about the Afghan situation, Museveni said that at the request of the US government, his country had agreed to temporarily accommodate about 2000 Afghans on its territory, rejecting concerns that they would constitute a security danger. He went on to add that he thought the US erred in Afghanistan by trying to “fight other people’s wars.”

Museveni told FRANCE 24’s Marc Perelman in Uganda’s capital Entebbe that he may withdraw Ugandan troops from Somalia owing to infighting among the country’s leaders, which he referred to as “political AIDS.”
Museveni said that a jihadist group that recently took control of an oil-rich area in northern Mozambique was connected to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a Ugandan Islamist militia operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. He said that he is willing to act militarily in that region against the ADF, but that he must first get authorization from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Ugandan president accused Rwandan President Paul Kagame of shutting the border between the two countries two years ago, and he dismissed Kagame’s claims that he was acting as the region’s ruler.
He also chastised international human rights groups like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, accusing them of meddling in Uganda’s “internal politics.”
Finally, Museveni said that an inquiry into the murders of more than 50 protesters during the previous presidential campaign will be made public in November 2020, and that anyone found responsible would face punishment.
He also denied being worried about his main opponent, Bobi Wine, winning the election. He went on to add that he was open to speaking with his opponent.
