Museveni's Casino: Anne Mugisha on Uganda's 2011 election

"We knew exactly what was going to happen in this election. We complained about the registers, we complained about the inflated numbers of people on the registers, we complained about the use of state resources in the election, but we still agreed to go in and participate. So that's like walking into a casino, knowing that the guy who owns it has to make a profit. Sometimes a few lucky people make some money. But most of the time people lose. So this time around I lost. A few of our opposition people did scrape through, but the casino is owned by the ruling party and President Museveni and they would definitely be looking to make a profit. So that's how I see this election, like a trip to the casino." -- Mugisha, candidate for Women's Member of Parliament in Southern Uganda's Mbarara District talking to AfrobeatRadio's Ann Garrison
