Rwandan president backs Museveni's fifth term

23 December 2015, 15:06

Kigali – Rwandan President Paul Kagame has come out in the open to give his support for Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni to be re-elected for his fifth successive presidential term in the 2016 presidential elections, reports the Daily Monitor.

Speaking during the closing of the national dialogue at the Kigali convention center, Kagame said he believed Ugandans would elect someone who can ensure peace and stability.

“If you want my preference, I have worked with president Museveni well and I wish him success,” Kagame said.

Kagame is the second African leader to show support for Museveni after Kenya's deputy president William Ruto caused anger among Ugandan opposition parties when he addressed and urged the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) members to support Museveni at a rally in Kapchorwa District.

“I am a follower and a big fan of President Museveni because he has a vision for our region. He has a vision larger than his country. I am a proud East African because I can clearly see where we are going,” Ruto was quoted as saying.
