ENTEBBE, Uganda – “He’s the Ugandan Donald Trump,” a colleague quipped after Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni finished delivering a rambling speech at the ceremony here Monday marking 40 years to the Entebbe raid.
Except for one huge difference. Trump wants to be president; Museveni has been president of his country for more than 30 years.
That type of longevity, it seems, gives a man certain privileges. And this is where the similarities to Trump kick in. Like Trump, the Ugandan president seemed to be shooting from the hip.
