President Uhuru Kenyatta has congratulated Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, for clinching the Presidency. He has also lauded the people of Uganda for re-electing Museveni .

This is what appeared on Uhuru’s Facebook page:

“I am very pleased to congratulate His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni on his re-election as President of the Republic of Uganda. The people of Uganda have spoken, and they have spoken very clearly. We respect their choice of President Museveni.

Kenya values its close friendship with Uganda. That friendship is founded on a common history, a common culture, and common interests. In years past, we have worked closely together for the prosperity and freedom of our nations. We look forward to continuing the work that both our nations have already done, together and in concert with the East African Community, the African Union, and IGAD. We look forward, too, to even closer integration.

I wish President Museveni every success as he serves his nation for another term. He and Uganda can count on my support, and my friendship, as well as that of their brothers and sisters in Kenya”.

Museveni trounced his closest challenger, Kizza Besigye, to be declared the winner by the Uganda Electoral Commission. He is set to rule Uganda for another 5 years.
