President Museveni has once again congratulated William Ruto for having been confirmed as the duly elected president of the Republic of Kenya by the country’s Supreme Court.
I rang H.E @WilliamsRuto to congratulate him on the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision to uphold his election as the 5th President of Kenya. I look forward to working with him to strengthen our Strategic Partnership in advancing the EAC agenda. God bless the people of Kenya. pic.twitter.com/8HrG5eRiWl

The highest court in the land on Monday afternoon upheld the election of as Kenya’s fifth president after unanimously throwing it a petition by Azimio la Umoja one Kenya coalition candidate Raila Odinga who had argued that the election on August 9 was null and void.
The Ugandan president said he is looking forward to working with the newly elected Kenyan president.
However the relationship between the two has grown with time just like fine wine to where it is now as Museveni is still seeking to continue as the kingpin of East Africa a position some say would have put him at odds with Kenya had Odinga become the president.
Ruto seems the much desired President that Ugandan leader would have ever wanted for Kenya since he respects and appreciates Museveni and with Kenyan impact on Uganda’s economy it would be easier for Museveni to deal with Ruto than any other candidate in the Kenyan race.
