Photos of Ugandan President Sitting Roadside in a Foldout Chair Spawns Viral #M7Challenge

Ugandans had absolutely no chill.

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni apparently had an important phone call that just couldn’t wait as he left a World Population celebration in Isingiro district Tuesday.


His motorcade screeched to a stop in Kyeirumba village and out came a padded foldout chair placed on the side of the road. Museveni plopped down to chat for 30 minutes. Afterward he greeted residents who had gathered.

Museveni’s impromptu stop didn’t go unnoticed, especially after his press secretary shared photos on Facebook.

And Ugandans had absolutely no chill. Some speculated whether Museveni was trying to stop the release of his political rival Kizza Besigye from being released on bail.  They made memes and created the #M7Challenge, (a play on Museveni’s nickname), sharing photos imitating the 71-year-old leader.

Their reactions are too funny:

So. dead.
