Kampala - Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has warned donor countries that are in the "habit" of criticising his government, to back off.
According to the Monitor, Museveni said he didn't take lightly to foreigners telling him how to run his country.
He said this after the West slammed his east African country for failing to hold credible elections.
Museveni swept to his fifth election victory in February after winning with 61% of the vote.
The elections, according to reports, were marred by numerous problems ranging from late delivery of ballots to arrests and intimidation of candidates and supporters.
Foreign observers covering the elections at the time, said that the opposition never stood a chance because of Museveni's grip on Uganda and his unlimited access to state resources.
According to the United States UN Permanent Representative, Samantha Power, Museveni jeopardised the democratic progress of Uganda during the elections.
"The social media shutdown, the detention of Opposition figures, harassment of media - all of these things combined with poor organisation of the election have weakened Uganda’s democracy and tarnished Uganda’s image as a strong democracy in a turbulent region, Power stated.
But Museveni maintained over the weekend that the opposition "were just weak and sleepy".
