Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is in neighbouring Kenya for the country’s Golden Jubilee Independence celebrations.
President Museveni on Wednesday afternoon arrived in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi at the invitation of President Uhuru Kenyatta where he is due to attend celebrations taking place today.
The celebrations will be held at the Safaricom Sports Centre in Kasarani, Nairobi.
President Museveni flew to Kenya directly from South Africa where he joined other world leaders Tuesday for the national memorial service of Mzee Nelson Mandela.
He was received on arrival at Kenyatta International Airport by Kenya Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Mining, Hon. Najib Balala. Others at the airport to receive the President included Senator John K. Lunyangapuo who is MP for West Pokot; Busongora South MP, Hon. Kafuda Boaz and Hon. Babirye Veronica Kadogo who is also Vice-Chairperson of the Committee for East African Community.
On 12 December 1964 the Republic of Kenya was proclaimed, and Jomo Kenyatta became Kenya’s first president.
