President Museveni’s Welcome In Kigali Leaves Tongues Wagging

President Museveni’s welcome occasion in Kigali the capital city of Rwanda has left people’s tongues on social media wagging. The Ugandan president arrived in Kigali, Rwanda for the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

And right from the Gatuna border between the two countries, Museveni received a warm welcome. He proceeded to Kigali where there were multitudes of people awaiting his arrival.

These flooded the streets of the city and one could have thought that they were welcoming a big sports or entertainment figure. But no, it was the Ugandan president.

It was the president of Uganda who some Ugandans feel have had enough. Yet the Rwandese could have made you feel that they would gladly exchange him for Kagame.

Comments started flying in from both the opponents, supporters and public figures in regards to this welcome.

NTV presenter Faridah Nakazibwe wondered if Museveni paid these crowds in Kigali to welcome him. This was a jab to the Museveni critics who always claim that he pays people to appear in numbers at his rallies.

“But this man mzeei. He still bribed people in Rwanda to welcome him,” Faridah wondered which drove in a number of hostile reactions to her. Some of her followers accused her of pampering the president yet they ‘know’ that she is opposition through and through.

“Here when he’s passing they take him speed. How shall we show him that love? Kigali etulabisa,” Galaxy FM presenter Prim Asiimwe also reacted to the parade of people Museveni received.

And of all the people who commented on this development, we all know that someone’s remark couldn’t miss. This is none other than the first son and commander of the Land Forces Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

He took to praising his father as a true Muchwezi adding that he’s loved beyond borders. Furthermore, he said that Uganda and Rwanda are one country.

The comments were numerous although most Ugandan social media users were less enthusiastic about this welcome towards the old man with the hat.
