His tweet raised eyebrows as some questioned whether he was trying to dispute a revolution coming his way.

The veteran Ugandan politician came to power on the back of a guerrilla struggle. Since then, he has refused to leave power and most recently eliminated presidential term limits.

Attempts to open conversations around the subject was halted in the media in the East African nation and Members of Parliament even scuffled on the floor of parliament as the issue was raised.

Museveni won a fifth term last year amid claims of voter fraud and intimidation.

He was involved in toppling two presidents and has ruled Uganda for over 30 years
