Museveni Turns Down Offer of Centre in His Name


President Yoweri Museveni has blocked a suggestion of establishing Museveni Excellence Centre proposed by the political science Department at Makerere University.

While at Makerere to launch the Julius Nyerere Leadership Centre on Saturday, President Museveni said the idea was unnecessary. He defended his decision saying that beginning an academic centre in his name yet there is one for Mzee Nyerere would be duplicating strategies and ideology of Mwalimu, as the former Tanzanian leader was commonly known.
