Kenya-Uganda bond is growing stronger – Ruto affirms


President William Ruto has affirmed that Kenya and the neighbouring Uganda will continue being close friends.

Ruto, who jetted out to Uganda on Saturday, spent the night in the President Yoweri Museveni-led nation ahead of Sunday Independence Day celebration in which he will be a party to.

The Kenyan president in his statement said:

“Had a great meeting with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at State House, Entebbe, Uganda, ahead of tomorrow’s 60th Independence Day celebrations. The Kenya – Uganda bond is growing stronger.”

The visit comes after a diplomatic tiff threat that was occasioned by controversial tweets made by Museveni’s son Muhoozi Kaineguraba.

His threat to capture Nairobi with his army in less than two weeks sparked uproar among Kenyan with some even demanding that the Kenyan ambassador to Uganda should be recalled.

Museveni, however, tendered his apology to Kenya and disassociated Uganda from the tweets.
