Here We Go: African Dictator Orders Ebola Lockdown

Don’t look now, but another wave of virology fear porn is about to sweep through Africa. 

The dreaded Ebola has never quite lived up to the hype, but it’s still used a clarion call for a bio security coup d’etat. 

It seems that Uganda’s ‘President for Life’, Yoweri Museveni, sensed some potential political unrest brewing due to his country’s flailing economy and systemic corruption, and so he did what any self-respecting despot would do: declare an epidemic, and start locking down the country down.
