Ugandans criticize Kenyans for attacking Uhuru over Museveni's message

22 February 2016, 12:18 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Senior members of Uganda's ruling party, NRM have criticized Kenyans who have attacked President Uhuru Kenyatta for congratulating  President Yoweri Museveni on winning the recently held presidential elections.

Kenyans launched bitter attacks on President Uhuru on social media, criticizing him for congratulating Museveni whom they referred to as a dictator.

They said Museveni had over stayed in power and turned into a dictator not worth congratulating.

NRM spokesman for eastern Uganda, Micheal Wandera said those criticizing Kenyatta are not only short-sighted but do not know the history of Uganda.

''Some Kenyans are saying that Museveni's leadership shows that he is a dictator but that is not true. In the history of Uganda, it is only in Museveni's regime that the relationship between Kenya and Uganda has improved,'' said Wandera.

Wandera said that unlike in the past, Kenyans now freely move to Uganda and Ugandans also move freely into Kenya without any suspicion or tension.

Aida Namale, NRM coordinator in central Uganda said that she is aware that most Kenyans admire Museveni for what he has done for Uganda and east Africa at large but a few are either biased or ignorant about affairs of Uganda.

''It is only a few misinformed Kenyans who hate Museveni. Most Kenyans admire him because before he came to power, the relationship between Uganda and Kenya was not always good and our economy was completely disorganized,''  said Namale.

She said that unlike in the past when Uganda was the laughing stock of Africa, it is one of the most respected countries on the continent.
