The challenge became a global dance phenomenon last year year following the release of the Jerusalema song by South African musician Master KG featuring Nomsebo.
President Museveni in his reason said he released the video after the youthful supporters prompted him.
This video comes as Ugandans go into the polls on Thursday for a new parliament and president.
Meanwhile, this animated dance video is not the only thing the president has done to try to appeal to the younger generation. There is another video making rounds on social media of President Museveni trying to talk like Bobi Wine. In the video, Museveni is heard calling the youth “…Bakyali bange …”- loosely translated to mean ‘my peers’.
Uganda, a country with over 75% of the population under 30 is heading into elections. This election will be if not the most difficult for president Museveni, then the one where he walks away a winner but with a bloody nose.
There are several candidates challenging Museveni’s 35 year rule. Among them is popstar and firebrand politician Bobi Wine, his closest rival, if not his worst nightmare. Ever since his decision to join politics in 2017, Bobi Wine has been Museveni’s most difficult and sophisticated political critic.
