Uhuru to Address Uganda Parliament During Three-Day State Visit (allAfrica.com)

President Uhuru Kenyatta will leave on Friday for an official visit to Uganda, during which he will address parliament and be hosted to a state dinner.

Uhuru will also hold bilateral talks with President Yoweri Museveni, attend a business forum and meet the Kenyan community in Uganda.

The two leaders will hold a joint press conference on Sunday and later be joined by Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn for another meeting.

The visit follows US President Barack Obama’s tour of Kenya and Ethiopia last week, and Museveni’s announcement that he will run for another term after 30 years in power.

Uganda’s prime minister assured the country of a free, peaceful and democratic presidential election in 2016.

But during his visit in Ethiopia, Obama asked African leaders to step aside when their terms end, saying “nobody should be president for life”.
