Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s wealth is in the tune of millions of dollars but his salary is less than $20,000 per month.
Latest figures shows that Museveni earns a monthly salary of $ 15, 000, which is among the lowest in Africa and world at large. This salary is, however, basic since there are several other benefits he enjoys as a president. For instance, when he travels abroad, he must receive allowances, which amounts to at least $500 per day.
Museveni’s wealth includes ranches in Rwakitura and Kisozi Uganda which accommodates over 2,000 healthy cows which produce thousands of liters of milk daily. The Uganda president makes at least Ush 100 million per month from his farm.
Apart from livestock farming, Museveni has interests in real estate, hotel industry as well as transport industry. He has also invested heavily in the banking industry.
The longest serving president of Uganda is estimated to be worth $ 700 million.
According to close sources, Museveni is a mysterious man, very secretive that he is reluctant to tell even own wife what he owns. But the source confirms that the president has accumulated enough to feed entire generation.
Museveni is believed to be even richer than Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta even though Uhuru is ranked by Forbes as the richest president in East and Central Africa.
