Museveni’s candidacy in the 2011 presidential election was officially announced this week. The choicest quote comes from Major Kakooza Mutale, the mastermind behind the Kalangala Action Plan, the paramilitary organization that intimidated (and often beat the living daylights out of) opposition supporters during the 2001 and 2006 elections:

I am not among those people who will die for Uganda but among those who will kill you for Uganda. I will kill anybody who challenges Uganda and don’t underrate me because of my gray hair, I will kill you.
