Museveni speaks out on Trump victory, Cameron defeat

President Yoweri Museveni has spoken out on the recent election and referendum reversals in the US and UK, that have led to the victory of Donald Trump and defeat of David Cameron.

He explained that one leading factor has been a backlash after these nations launched “unjust” wars across the world.

“Anyway, for now, the adventures of the Western countries into North-Africa and the Middle-East, have caused human disasters in those target areas but also political casualties in the countries of the aggressors, not to mention the nationalist backlash against ‘Western liberalism’, ” Museveni said.

Museveni added that “Although there are other reasons that we outsiders cannot easily know, there is one factor that has turned into a curse for the perpetrators. This is the factor of conducting wars of aggression against Sovereign States that are, moreover, members of the UN.”

“Cynically speaking, though, the USA and EU should not complain about Africans and Arabs flooding into those countries as refugees.  They are the ones that had invaded our countries as imperialists, in the first place,” Museveni said in a missive bottom.

He also blamed his fellow Africans for not standing up to the dominating nations invasion of countries including Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya.

“The present African leaders are, however, also co-guilty in this matter. We should never have allowed external powers to attack any part of the African soil without our permission. I had fought Gaddafi two times: 1972 and 1979.  I needed no lectures on the positive and negative points of Gaddafi,” he said.
