According to the article in The Guardian this came after Yoweri Museveni, the president of Uganda, was mocked for suggesting his country had more to offer tourists than Spain. He was quoted as saying that his country is a “better destination” for holidaymakers than Spain arguing that the attractions go way beyond “some chimpanzees” and should be better marketed by the Uganda Tourism Board.

Uganda is a “good place on the globe where you go and have a nice life”, he said, pointing to a favourable climate unlike Spain which is too “hot and humid” in the summer.

Well maybe he is right; 79% of responded to The Guardian’s poll agreed that they would rather holiday in Uganda, over Spain.
