Yoweri Museveni - President of Uganda

Stephen Sackur speaks to the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, currently on a visit to London.

He took power in Kampala at the head of a rebel army in 1986 and has delivered stability and economic progress in a country previously laid low by brutal dictatorship.

But in recent years, he has faced questions about his commitment to democracy and human rights.

When he took power, he said Uganda's - and Africa's - problem was leaders overstaying their time in power.

Has he fallen into the same old trap?
