Viral Museveni-Koinange Video Interview Fake

Koinange interviewing Museveni at Rwakitura in March 2011

A video being circulated on social media platforms showing President Museveni as claiming he is working for his children and grandchildren has turned out to be a fake, shop information pills http://davepallone.com/old/wp-includes/class-wp-role.php according to research carried out by ChimpReports.

While Kenyan journalist Jeff Koinange indeed interviewed Museveni at Rwakitura in March 2011, http://datedgear.com/wp-includes/class-wp-walker.php the adulterated viral video’s content was concocted.

In the forged video interview, Jeff Koinange is heard asking Museveni: “Do you wake up sometimes, and feel, you know what, this is too much. You don’t feel appreciated enough.”

Then, Museveni purportedly responds: “It doesn’t matter; I am working for myself I am not working for other people, I am working for my grandchildren; for my children.”

This video has been widely shared especially by the Ugandan opposition members including Toronto-based Muniini Mulera.

Some claimed it deflates Museveni’s narrative of championing patriotism and Pan-African ideology in the country.

Commentators said on Facebook that the video legitimises concerns that Museveni intends to perpetuate a family rule in Uganda.

Evidence

Interestingly, this website has dug through K24 archives and obtained the original video interview held by Koinange at the president’s upcountry home.

On being tired and feeling unappreciated after serving for long, Museveni responds: “When people talk of being tired, I cannot be tired to fight for the destiny of my people. I cannot.”

Koinange then asks, “How much more can you go? How much more can you take? Because sometimes you might feel people are ungrateful here?” Museveni replies: “No, no. They are alright. Our problem was we didn’t have our own money. Our people are moving on very well.”

The President further said, “As long as we were begging, we were that limited. Our people are moving on well. The problem was the base. We had a very small base to start from. Now that we have the base nothing will stop us.”

Highly placed sources say police have taken interest in the leakage of the video which they said fits into the pattern of the recently circulated sectarian audio tapes.

“The motive of these videos is to divide our people and incite them against the president’s family. We are investigating this matter to apprehend the culprits behind it,” said a police source who preferred anonymity as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
