President Uhuru performed dismally in Uganda in a trip many local Ugandans referred to as ‘home-coming’.
Across Uganda, there has been incessant rumours that Jomo Kenyatta was a son to a Ugandan. Soon after Uhuru became President, this folklore gained new currency.
Facing an election nightmare, President Yoweri Museveni, now in power for over three decades, invited President Uhuru, a hugely popular figure in Uganda to shore up his ratings against a resurgent opposition.
However, in a speech that has left more to be desired, Uhuru’s hosts failed to give even a single standing ovation, neither are the reviews in Uganda local media very comforting.
Uhuru speech sounded more like that made to some rag tag economic forums, he talked about roads, Railways and trade. He bashed the West by blaming colonialism >>> all these were not received well as Ugandan politicians were eager to hear Uhuru call for a free and fair election next year election.
