The coronavirus lockdown in Uganda “seems to be selective, not everyone is affected the same way,” says Shaka when addressing the arrest of Ugandan opposition leader and presidential contender Bobi Wine for violating coronavirus safety guidelines for political campaigns. Paul Ndiho and Shaka Ssali talk about the notion of stability and democracy and what that means in a number of African countries. Shaka also talks about term limits and uses the United States as an example of the peaceful transition of power from one president to the next.
Shaka: Extra Time is a weekly show (every Tuesday at 16:30 UTC) on the Straight Talk Africa Facebook page, where viewers and social media followers ask the popular Straight Talk Africa host, Shaka Ssali, questions about politics in Africa. Paul Ndiho hosts the show. The show is also carried by television stations in Africa.
