What Ruto Did On Monday Evening After Museveni's Latest Position On Kenyan Elections.

Deputy president William Ruto has been enjoying a good relationship with Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni.

At some point last year, Uganda's strongman invited Ruto to be chief guest during the official laying down of the foundation stone for a Vaccine manufacturing facility.

Their close ties saw the DP planning another trip to Uganda but unfortunately, he was blocked from traveling outside the country.

He later on accused the interior ministry led by cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiangi for frustrating him.

With the seemingly good relationship between Ruto and Museveni, one would imagine that Museveni is pro-ruto as far as August 9 Elections are Concerned.

Museveni has however come out today and decided to set the record straight saying that he doesn't support any side in Kenya ahead of the elections.

He told Uganda's new visions that it's only kenyans who have the mandate to elect their leader hence he can't meddle in the internal affairs of another country.

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

Museveni's remarks came at a time when Ruto is working on strengthing his Campaign team ahead of the polls.
