ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the President of Uganda, Yoweri K. Museveni, and his government's increasing pattern of corruption and repression. In the 1990s, Museveni was heralded by many as a fresh African leader who could bring stability to his country. Western support made Museveni feel secure in his power, which emboldened him to invade Congo in 1998, arrest political adversary Kizza Besigye, and quiet political dissent. Support for the U.S. War on Terror has kept him popular with some in the U.S. State Department.
