But opposition leaders, critics and others eager for change say his rise is leading the East African country toward hereditary rule. Because Ugandan law prohibits a serving military officer from engaging in partisan affairs, some say Kainerugaba has already crossed the line. A Ugandan attorney last week filed a petition with the Constitutional Court seeking a declaration that Kainerugaba's political activities are unlawful. Bobi Wine, the popular singer who challenged Museveni in elections last year, accuses Kainerugaba's security agents of torture. Kainerugaba's public events, he said, are aimed at "testing the waters" as Museveni gauges public support for family rule.

The rush of civilians from rural villages plagued by extremist violence has put pressure on Burkina Faso's cities. When it seized power in January, Burkina Faso's ruling junta vowed to stamp out extremist violence, but it has done little about the swelling numbers of displaced. So far, the junta has not succeeded in stemming the extremist violence. Hard-hit areas like the Center North region, which hosts Burkina Faso's largest displaced population, are buckling under the pressure. With no end to the jihadi violence in sight, the numbers of Burkina Faso's displaced are expected to continue flooding urban centers where they'll be hunting for jobs.

I wonder if it's humanly possible to pen an article about Brexit without rattling someone's cage? Perhaps the closest we can get to a position of impartiality is if we'd abstained and didn't vote at all in the Brexit referendum? It was all highly charged and few Brexit related subjects were ever discussed dispassionately. BackburnerMany would choose to identify Brexit as the root cause of all our current woes but it clearly isn't. Milliband would not have granted that referendum, so a convincing Tory victory was seen as a mandate for a Brexit referendum to finally take place.
