Oh goodness!!! See VIDEO as Ugandan doctors kneel before President Museveni, beg him to run for 7th term in 2026

A group of doctors in Uganda caused a stir after kneeling before long-time President Yoweri Museveni, asking him to to run for a seventh term. 



The 78-year-old leader has been in power since 1986. The next general elections are due in 2026.


The doctors representing the Uganda Medical Association (UMA) had attended a patriotism symposium in the capital, Kampala, on Saturday, December 3, 2022, when they were led by their leader to kneel before the president. 


In his speech, UMA boss Dr Samuel Odongo Oledo praised the president for transforming the country’s health system and improving the welfare of medical workers, the Nile Post news site reports.

He went ahead to ask President Museveni to vie again in 2026 as a presidential candidate, the NTV television station reports.


The gesture sparked controversy on social media, with many accusing the group of being subservient to politicians.

Dr Oledo has also come under heavy criticism since making the remarks, with a section of the UMA members even calling for his resignation.


UMA’s deputy president, Edith Nakku-Jolaba, and the association’s secretary general, Herbert Luswata, say Oledo made the comments in his personal capacity and not on behalf of the association.


“The act of kneeling by Dr Oledo and the team doesn’t represent the Modus Operandi of the Association,” Nakku-Jolaba and Luswata said in a joint statement, adding that UMA “is nonpartisan and therefore, does not participate in political activities of partisan nature." said Nakku-Jolaba.
