Uganda’s long-serving President Yoweri Museveni has said it would be wrong to hold a presidential election due early next year if the coronavirus persists, signalling for the first time a possible postponement


“To have elections when the virus is still there… It will be madness,”



The 75-year-old Museveni, whom opponents cast as an authoritarian clinging to power, said this in an interview with the local NBS Television aired late on Monday.
