President of neighbouring country Uganda Yoweri Museveni and his government do not endorse any candidate in Kenya’s August General Election.

Speaking to one Ugandan media house on Monday, Museveni said the August elections are the affairs of Kenyans and Uganda does not take sides.

“Elections in Kenya or any other African country are a matter for the people of that country,” Museveni said.

He added his country does not take sides in any other elections involving any other African country as Uganda does not interfere with the internal affairs of other countries.

“We never take sides in the internal affairs of other countries. So, we have no side in the Kenya elections,” Museveni added.

This comes at the backdrop of the cordial relationship Museveni and Deputy President William Ruto have enjoyed in the past.

In 2015, Ruto got involved actively in Museveni’s campaigns, raising concerns among Ugandans, especially those who were in the opposition.
