A. Milton Obote, on the campaign trail upon return from Tanzania.

“You just can’t come from London and say ‘I AM NOW PRESIDENT’.

Lule wants to be Prezident! (pronouncitation stressed).
Binaisa wants to be Prezident!
Museveni wants to be President!
Who else? (laughter from crowd)
Ssemogerere wants to be President!
But if they don’t want to come and ask you for your votes, why should you allow them? The president of huganda’s role is spelt out in the constitution of huganda”
