  • Talk to Al Jazeera - Yoweri Museveni: A five times-elected dictator?

    He’s ruled Uganda for 31 years. With five presidential terms in office, Yoweri Museveni is surrounded by controversies related to freedom of speech, human rights, allegations of nepotism, and even the killing of Ugandan citizens. But President Museveni claims Uganda is the most democratic country in the world and that he is leading his people out of poverty and to an even better future. At 72, though, he’s three years away from the constitutional age limit to serve as President. But there is already speculation he will try to change that limit so he can get around it. We'll discuss all of this in an exclusive interview as he visited the State of Qatar. Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda, Talks to Al Jazeera.

Last year, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City shelter for ex-convicts. Everyone there was trying to get their feet back on the ground.

Translated from the ArabicKhalifa’, the word ‘caliph’ means successor or deputy. The caliph was considered the successor to the Prophet Muhammad. It is a term that has, at times, been abused. In June 2014, a militant group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (known as ISIL or ISIS) declared the establishment of a caliphate and proclaimed its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a caliph.

He’s ruled Uganda for 31 years. With five presidential terms in office, Yoweri Museveni is surrounded by controversies related to freedom of speech, human rights, allegations of nepotism, and even the killing of Ugandan citizens. But President Museveni claims Uganda is the most democratic country in the world and that he is leading his people out of poverty and to an even better future. At 72, though, he’s three years away from the constitutional age limit to serve as President. But there is already speculation he will try to change that limit so he can get around it. We'll discuss all of this in an exclusive interview as he visited the State of Qatar. Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda, Talks to Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera: Human Rights Watch, in its latest report, criticised Uganda's government's dealings in terms of human rights. Suppression of free speech, putting dissidents in jail … we have the case of Stella Nyanzi who is still in jail just because she expressed herself. We also have the opposition leader who has been in jail several times. We have the government cracking down on opponents and preventing people from rallying freely. By law, more than five people should have the consent and agreement of the police before they can express themselves in the street. Yoweri Museveni: Uganda is one of the most democratic countries in the world. In terms of free speech, we have something like 250 private radios, which say whatever they want. We have so many television stations, private … I don't know how many you have here in Qatar, private ones … maybe you can tell me. I only see Al Jazeera. But for us, we have so many. The empowerment of women - many women compared to other countries - in leadership. Al Jazeera: Why is activist Stella Nyanzi still in jail just because she expressed herself? Museveni: If you are an activist and you commit an offence, because with human rights you must also speak of the rights of others, you cannot trample on the rights of others, and you say "it is my right to abuse other people", to insult other people … no. Rights go with responsibilities - if you know anything about democracy. Al Jazeera: More than just jail and cracking down on dissent, we have bloodshed in Uganda. In western Uganda, in Rwenzururu, just a few months ago, more than 100 people were killed by security forces who attacked a traditional cultural kingdom in the area, saying that that place had "terrorists" inside. What do you say to this? Museveni: That issue is in court and according to our law, when something is in court I am not allowed to comment. The court will tell us whether those people were arrested for nothing or not. Al Jazeera: We are talking about those who were killed, not those who are in court. Museveni: Yes, even those who were killed. Were they killed for no reason - we shall find out from the court. It is in the court now. We call it the principle of sub judice. If I start saying they were wrong, they were this, they were that … then I'm interfering with the court. What I can tell you is since the matter is in the court, bring all your cameras, come to the court and film what they say. I invite you. Al Jazeera: But we here, and the international audience of Al Jazeera, want to know what happened and we won't be in court to see it. We want you, Mr President, to explain to us why you sent your troops to that area, to Kasese, to kill more than 100 people. Museveni: Because they were breaking the law. Al Jazeera: In what way? They were just guarding the palace [home of Omusinga Mumbere, king of the cultural institution] and they didn't have any weapons. Museveni: In Uganda, we've got many kings. They are not guarded by militias. They are guarded by the national army. Al Jazeera: According to our facts, those people were killed and the king was persecuted because they were opposed to the president in the election. Because they are not pro-the ruling government. Museveni: Not at all, and there are so many [opposed to the ruling government]. If they opposed the president, then what was the militia doing? Do political parties have militias? Al Jazeera: Mr President, it seems that Ugandans are a little fed up with you because we are reading a lot of reports about this Facebook revolution. People are trying to go to the streets even though they are prevented and they are afraid, of course, of the security forces. They want to create something like the Arab Spring in Uganda. They are fed up because it has been more than three decades of your leadership and term after term after term, it is only one man ruling the country and the world around Uganda has changed. All presidents around Uganda have gone. Do you agree with me that there is a little bit of fatigue with your leadership?

Otis Johnson went to jail at the age of 25. When he got out at 69, he rejoined a world that was starkly different from the one he remembered. This is his story. Last year, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City shelter for ex-convicts. Everyone there was trying to get their feet back on the ground. Otis had just got out of prison after serving a 44-year sentence. The last time he had seen his family was May 1975. When we shared Otis's first story of being reintroduced to the modern world, viewers were amazed by just how unfamiliar everything was to him. iPhones, Times Square, jars of pre-mixed peanut butter and jelly ... everything was new or starkly different. INTERACTIVE: My life after 44 years in prison. The story of Otis Johnson His story clearly resonated with people. More than 12 million people watched Otis' story on YouTube, and we wanted to show them what happened next. We went to Asbury Park, in New Jersey, with Otis to try to find them. Reconnecting with family was something he had said he was always interested in doing, but hadn't got round to yet. After all, he was still learning how to navigate the city. He had a small box where he kept old, tattered photos of family members, but that was basically all the information he had on them. "The only address I really have is Asbury Park," Otis told us. So we took the train to Asbury Park not knowing much. But we did have Otis' memory. Once we arrived at the train station and began roaming the streets, small things about his old home slowly came back to him: extended family members, friends, shops. He wanted to find his aunt, Dottie Moore, and some other family members. He said many would probably think he was dead. When we talked to Otis about his relationship with his family, his answers were complicated. He was a member of the Fruit of Islam (the paramilitary wing of Nation of Islam, the Islamic religious movement once famously led by Malcom X) in his younger days. The Nation of Islam's stated goals were to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans. Otis was a devout Muslim who said he helped "clean up the streets" of drug dealers. "We wasn't all bad," he would say. But Otis said some of his family members didn't buy that. He didn't know if they would be angry or happy to see him after all these years away. He had a nervous energy about him as we walked down Pine Street, knocking on doors and asking strangers about Dottie Moore. This final story on Otis Johnson is one of reconnection and reconciliation. It is the story of a man on a quest to reunite with remnants of his past and one, we hope, many can relate to.

For almost 13 centuries, from the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632 to the overthrow of the last Ottoman caliph in 1924, the Islamic world was ruled by a caliph. Translated from the ArabicKhalifa’, the word ‘caliph’ means successor or deputy. The caliph was considered the successor to the Prophet Muhammad. It is a term that has, at times, been abused. In June 2014, a militant group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (known as ISIL or ISIS) declared the establishment of a caliphate and proclaimed its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a caliph. This proclamation was rejected by the overwhelming majority of the world’s Muslims. ISIL had attempted to appropriate a title imbued with religious and political significance – and in doing so had cast a dark shadow over a rich history. This is the story of the caliph, a title that originated 1,400 years ago and that spanned one of the greatest empires the world has ever known. In this episode of The Caliph, Al Jazeera tells the story of the caliphate, looking at the Sunni-Shia divide, and how this split arose from a dispute over who should succeed the Prophet Muhammad.

What's behind the diplomatic breakdown in the Gulf? – Inside Story This time it's more than just recalling ambassadors. Land and sea borders have been closed. On top of that, major airlines are cancelling flights to and from Doha. And Qatar residents have two weeks to leave the Gulf states in question. Qatari leaders say they’re astonished at what they call the unjustified decision by seven countries to cut diplomatic relations. A cabinet statement said the aim is to strip Qatar of its sovereign decisions. The Foreign Ministry said: 'The aim is clear and it is to impose guardianship on the state. This by itself is a violation of Qatar's sovereignty as a state. So, how far will this crisis go? And what will mean for the Gulf Cooperation Council?

Girls: Pushing Boundaries in India, Mozambique, Morocco How a Moroccan surfer, rape survivors in India and a student activist in Mozambique are fighting for women's rights. Making Waves: Oumaima Erhali is a young Moroccan woman determined to become a full-time surfer. She is part of a generation pushing boundaries in a country, where some believe the beach is no place for a young Muslim woman. But the teenager won't let stereotypes hold her back from the sport she loves or the life she wants to lead. "Surfing is like going for therapy," says Erhali, who learned to surf by herself. "I love how you fly in the air like Spider-Man." She contends surfing doesn't contradict with Islam. "Being a Muslim comes from the heart. I like surfing because it makes me happy." India's Power Girls: Afreen Khan is a 17-year-old girl who is part of a generation of Indian women fighting rape and sexual harassment. Along with other young rape survivors, Afreen has formed a vigilante group called The Red Brigade. Together, they march along the streets in their red and black uniform, drag young men out of their homes and publically humiliate them for harassing women. They also teach self-defence to the girls of their community and organise protests. "Whenever there is a case of sexual abuse we take charge. We go, meet the victims and help them overcome the trauma," she says. Suzete's Battle True gender equality might seem a remote dream. However, in Mozambique, small steps are being made in the fight for women's rights thanks to the passion and determination of women like Suzete Sangula. The 18-year-old student activist has made it her mission to educate girls and young women about their rights, and teach them strategies to defend themselves. "My parents had a traditional mentality and I have changed their minds," explains Sangula. "Now, they grant me my space in society and at home. So other people will also end up granting me that space. That is what motivates me to continue." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based media network, marks its 21st anniversary on Wednesday, amid calls by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt for its closure. This year's anniversary comes as Mahmoud Hussein, one of the network's journalists remains in an Egyptian jail for over 300 days. Hussein, an Egyptian national based in Qatar, was detained while on holiday in December 2016. He was accused of "incitement against state institutions and broadcasting false news with the aim of spreading chaos". Al Jazeera has rejected all the accusations against him and calls for his immediate release. A number of human rights and press freedom groups have joined Al Jazeera in condemning Mahmoud's ongoing detention. 'Al Jazeera cannot be shut down' Hussein's detention was the latest in a string of arrests by authorities in Egypt and elsewhere, targeting the network's staff. In fact, throughout the past two decades, Al Jazeera and its journalists have repeatedly come under attack for covering news stories as they unfolded. READ MORE Al Jazeera demands press freedom Its offices have occasionally been bombed or shut down in many places, including in Kabul, Baghdad and Gaza. Reporters have been killed covering war zones in Iraq, Syria and Libya, while others have been jailed or forced to leave their countries following death threats. "This newsroom has transformed the media landscape the world over - but it's come at a price," Giles Trendle, Al Jazeera English managing director, said from the Qatari capital of Doha on the network's 21st anniversary. "Many of the journalists here have friends or colleagues who have sacrificed a great deal for the sake of what they consider to be sacrosanct: the right of people to be informed," he added. "Regardless of the continued campaigns against Al Jazeera as a network, Al Jazeera as an idea cannot be shut down." 'Changed idea of free speech in the region' In June, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar and imposed a land, sea and air embargo, accusing it of supporting "terrorism". Doha has repeatedly denied the allegation. One of the Saudi-led group's demands, in order to lift the blockade, is the shutting down of Al Jazeera. READ MORE An Open Letter from Al Jazeera Doha has rejected that demand, insisting that it is the duty of governments to protect basic human rights as enshrined in the Geneva Convention, including the right to information. "When you tell me to close a channel like Al Jazeera, history will write one day in 50, 60 or 70 years how it changed the whole idea of free speech in the region," Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani said in a recent interview with CBS' 60 Minutes, while reiterating that the fate of the network was not up for discussion. Media outlets and press freedom groups, including The Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Reporters Without Borders, the New York Times editorial board and The Guardian, have all condemned the efforts to pressure Qatar into shutting down Al Jazeera. 'Voice of the voiceless' On November 1, 1996, Al Jazeera's Arabic-language satellite channel launched its first broadcast from Doha. WATCH: Al Jazeera marks World Press Freedom Day (00:35) It has since expanded into a media network with several outlets, including the internet, and news channels in multiple languages. As one of the first Arab news channels, it soon became the most watched TV news outlet in the Middle East and North Africa. Its non-stop coverage of conflicts and uncensored talk shows were unprecedented in a region where government control of the media is widespread. Al Jazeera English was established in 2006 and has since won a host of prestigious awards from organisations around the world.

The Washington Post says US intelligence agencies have confirmed the United Arab Emirates was behind the hacking of the Qatar News Agency. The newspaper says the UAE arranged for false quotes to be attributed to the emir of Qatar, including describing Iran as an 'Islamic power' - as well as praising Hamas. Within days, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain accused Qatar of supporting terrorism - and cut diplomatic ties and closed their borders. Qatar has consistently denied the allegations and said the false remarks were posted by hackers - an explanation rejected by the quartet. What does the latest revelation mean for this dispute ?

Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures In front of a barrage of US cruise missiles an al-Jazeera reporter resolutely delivers a piece to camera. 'Still many Iraqis believe they will have the final victory despite their human fear for their own lives and the future of their children'. Ever since it gave airtime to Osama Bin Laden, al- Jazeera has gained itself a reputation among American officials as an anti-US propagandist. It is always the first to show resistance, civilian causalities or American captives. But accusations of an anti-US agenda are hotly refuted by top-rated presenter Faisal al-Qaseem: 'Let us say that it is an exercise in democracy' he shrugs. 'In the Arab world sadly we don't have political freedom. And now, thanks to al-Jazeera, democracy is the talk of the town'. But freedom of expression seems rarely to make any friends. Al-Jazeera's controversial discussion shows have led to it being banned at one time or another in over 15 Arab states. As violent riots erupt in Sana'a and Amman, many commentators play up Al-Jazeera's role in Middle Eastern security.

Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit enters the secretive world of the surveillance industry. Spy Merchants reveals for the first time how highly-invasive spyware, which can capture the electronic communications of a town, can be purchased in a 'grey market’ where regulations are ignored or bypassed. Mass surveillance equipment can then be sold onto authoritarian governments, criminals or even terrorists. During a four-month undercover operation, an industry insider working for Al Jazeera filmed the negotiation of several illegal, multi-million dollar deals that breach international sanctions. The proposed deals include the supply of highly restricted surveillance equipment to Iran. The undercover operative also secured an extraordinary agreement to purchase powerful spyware with a company who said they didn’t care who was the end-user.

While in a detention camp in Ukraine, Ali was told he'd be moving to the US through the United Nations refugee resettlement programme. Ali remembers getting the official notification on Eid Day in 2013: "In my life, I never thought that I will be in the USA," he says, because many others before him had been rejected.

On October 30, Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner of Kenya's presidential election for the second time in three months. Kenyans went to the polls for a rerun of the presidential election on October 26, after the country's Supreme Court had nullified the result of an earlier vote, held in August. The incumbent Kenyatta won 98 percent of the vote in the repeat - but with the opposition boycotting the election, turnout was low. Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow speaks with deputy president William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga on the legitimacy of October's vote and what's next for Kenya. Opposition candidate Raila Odinga had withdrawn from the election re-run, and had called on Kenyans to boycott the vote. "These were sham elections. In our view, they never took place. This result should not be allowed to stand," he tells Al Jazeera. A belief that the electoral commission had taken insufficient action to ensure a level playing field led him to pull out. "Going back to the election was basically going for a repeat. That is doing the same thing, the same way, expecting different results. And we said that it was a charade, it was going to be a waste of time and a waste of our resources," Odinga says. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Western leaders believe the network is based across the border in Pakistan and may even to some extent be protected there. But if you ask Hina Rabbani Khar, Pakistan's foreign minister, she will tell you her country has nothing to do with the group, and resents implications that it is not doing enough to fight extremists: "My country has lost as much blood as anyone else ...
