Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has ruled Uganda since 1986. In February 2021 Uganda held elections. Security forces  killed, arrested, and abused journalists, opposition members, and protestors. Repression by the Ugandan police and military continues to target minority ethnic groups and political opponents. Ugandan legislators have also made several unsuccessful, but impactful, attempts to implement the death penalty on top of already harsh prison sentences for homosexuality.
