In this special edition of HARDtalk, Stephen Sackur speaks to the President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, currently on a visit to London. He took power in Kampala at the head of a rebel army in 1986 - he’s delivered stability and economic progress in a country previously laid low by brutal dictatorship. But in recent years, he’s faced questions about his commitment to democracy and human rights. When he took power, he said Uganda, and Africa’s, problem was leaders overstaying their time in power – has he fallen into the same old trap?
