In Africa and our country Kenya, many people have been taking opportunities of general elections to get money from the politicians. They know that it is during that time that they can get the opportunity to milk some money from politicians but today, angry Uganda President Yoweri Museveni decided that there should be no more secrets as he lectured the people over election money.
According to reports, Museveni stated that in developed countries like the USA it is the people who give politicians money and that should be the trend in Uganda and Africa. The Head of State went on to insist that the money given by politicians during elections so as to lure the people to vote for them is always useless.
"In developed countries like USA, politicians don’t give people money to vote for them. In fact people give the politicians money. Here, it is the reverse. Politicians are the ones giving money, which is useless." Said President Yoweri Museveni as reported by the Daily Monitor.
