Kenya’s President William Ruto is expected to visit Kampala this week, his first trip to the neighboring country as Head of State.
Reports indicate the president is expected to hold a series of meetings with Ugandan leader Yoweri Museveni as well as address a meeting with the country’s MPs and NRM members.
The visit comes after President Museveni’s public apology to Kenya and to East Africans, in general, following a series of cryptic war tweets from Gen Muhoozi Kianerugaba targeting Kenya.
”I ask our Kenyan brothers and sisters to forgive us for tweets sent by General Muhoozi,” Museveni said in a statement, adding that public officers should not interfere in the affairs of other countries.
“I know for a fact that General Muhoozi is a passionate Pan-Africanist. However, the correct method for Pan-Africanists is confidential interactions or using the available (forums),” he said.
Earlier this week Kainerugaba’s social media posts drew angry reactions from Kenyans and prompted Uganda’s foreign affairs ministry to issue a statement asking Nairobi to disregard his comments.
