M7's Democratic Masquerade !

Over extended stay in power is an untenable premise in a democracy. It can only be maintained through coercion & manipulation of the democratic process. Unchecked, it's bound to implode soon or later like we've witnessed in the middle east!

In Uganda, M7 continues to masquerade as a democratically elected leader when in fact he is a nuanced version of the middle east despots that have just fallen.

M7 has overseen the changing of the constitution that favored his stay in power.
He has basically perverted our democracy through patronage, largess, and violence against any group that demonstrates against his regime.
M7 recently compared Ugandan's fundamental right to demonstrate peacefully to rioters.
He has imprisoned opponents on trumped up charges.
