Unlike his colleagues, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni usually does all manner of things for himself perhaps due to his military background.

The former UPDF soldier is often seen driving himself within his home district of Gomba or even in Kampala and State House premises.

On Friday, Museveni yet again caused a stir when he showed up grazing cattle with one of his daughters, Diana Museveni at his rural home.

In a series of tweets, Museveni said grazing helps parents to come up with a series of thoughts and ideas that helps them shape their mentality.

“My daughter Diana and I went grazing at the farm in Kisozi, Gomba District. We took stock of the cattle and discussed means of getting better yields,” he wrote.

“The grazing exercise is refreshing, one uses that time to think and come up with many ideas. That is how our parents came up with a rich language,” added Museveni.

In an interview with the BBC on Friday, Museveni accused Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyangulanyi alias Bobi Wine of being unpatriotic.

But in a rejoinder, the youthful legislator accused Mr Museveni of dictatorship, adding that his misrule will some day come to an end.

“Shamelessly Mr Museveni brands me enemy of Uganda’s progress! Mr. President, your first name is corruption, second liar, third despot,” he said.

“You’ve ran down our country, killed our people, destroyed institutions and rule us through the barrel of the gun! You are the enemy of Uganda!”
