All Quiet on the East Africa Front

We've made it through election day and even the result announcement with very little disturbance. Museveni was elected president once again. He won with 68%, a percentage no one knows to be absolute truth, but he won and there is peace at the moment.

There is a lot of talk about the future of the economy here in Uganda. The NRM (National Resistance Movement political party) and Museveni spent a lot of the countries money campaigning for office. How will that lack of money play out in everyday Ugandan life? Time will tell.
