A group of Ugandan doctors have taken a knee before President Yoweri Museveni asking him to run for a seventh term.
The doctors representing the Uganda Medical Association (UMA) had attended a patriotism symposium in the capital, Kampala, when they were led by their leader to kneel before the president.
In his speech, UMA leader, Dr Samuel Odongo Oledo praised the president for transforming the country’s health system and improving the welfare of medical workers, the Nile Post news site reports.
He asked President Museveni to run for new term in 2026.
Yoweri Museveni, 78, has been in power since 1986.
The gesture sparked controversy on social media, with many accusing the group of being subservient to politicians.
