In a statement Thursday, Museveni said he supported the court action against the politicians.

Once considered a marijuana-loving crooner, the 36-year-old "ghetto child" is a new member of parliament who urges his countrymen to stand up against what he calls a failing government.

Despite murmurs about his wild past and inexperience in politics, his approach appears to be working: All of the candidates he has backed in strongly contested legislative by-elections this year have emerged victorious. Beaten and bruised, often literally, opposition politicians have largely retreated as the 74-year-old Museveni pursues an even longer stay in power.

Mr Museveni has been in power since 1986, and is expected to run for office again.

Museveni, who is 73, is now able to seek re-election in 2021 because parliament passed legislation a year ago removing a clause in the Constitution that had prevented anyone over 75 from holding the presidency.
