“The elections in Kenya or in any other African nation are a matter for the people of that country to decide”, said Museveni in declarations quoted by the local press, thus denying rumors about an eventual support to the current vice-president William Ruto and aspirant to the highest office.

We never take sides in the internal affairs of other countries. Therefore, we do not take sides in the Kenyan elections, added the president, who maintains friendly relations with Ruto and in 2015 they were seen together in political rallies.

Reports circulated here said that Uganda and the ruling National Resistance Movement Party supported Ruto, who will face former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and others among former governors and ex-diplomats.

Ruto traveled several times to the neighboring country until he was prevented from flying in August last year. He even publicly considered Museveni as a role model for the peace and stability he achieved for Uganda.
