Episode notes

Is it democratic to force presidents to leave office?


Yoweri Museveni has run Uganda since 1986. Paul Biya has been president in Cameroon for nearly forty years. Paul Kagame could rule Rwanda till 2034 because many Rwandans voted for and continue to vote for him.

In Africa, the question of term limits is contentious. Should we force presidents to leave office? We invited three guests on the podcast to help figure it out.
