Milton Allimadi, Ugandan American Editor of the New York City-based Black Star News.

On Saturday, 12.14, I spoke to Ugandan American Black Star News Editor Milton Allimadi, about Uganda’s February 18th election for KPFA News and AfrobeatRadio, about whether or not Ugandan might follow Egypt after the February 18th polls that no one expect to be free or fair. That link is posted here on AfrobeatRadio.net, and this is a recording of our extended conversation, touching on:

- the European Union’s election observers’ mission,

- the Rwanda Genocide and the Acholi Genocide in Northern Uganda,

- the threat of war between Rwanda and Uganda, a backdrop to the Ugandan election, and, one possible explanation of the high level visit by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Under Secretary of State for African Affairs Johnnie Carson.


Milton Allimadi On Uganda, Rwanda, And Uganda’s 02.18 Election

Allies of the U.S., enemies of each other. There is considerable unease that Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, will go to war after Uganda's February 18th election, assuming Museveni remains in office.
