Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Hailemariam Desalegn will visit Uganda at the invitation of President Yoweri Museveni.
President Uhuru will arrive on Friday August 7, 2015 and will in the afternoon address Uganda’s Parliament after which he will be hosted to a state dinner.
During the visit President Uhuru will hold a bilateral meeting with President Museveni, attend a business forum and also meet members of the Kenyan Community in Uganda.
On Sunday President Uhuru and his host President Museveni will hold a joint press conference, and they will later be joined by Prime Minister Desalegn for a tripartite meeting.
Recently, both Uhuru and Desalegn hosted US President Barack Obama, and the meeting in Uganda might among other issues review Obama’s visit in relation to the security situation in East Africa and the Horn, particularly Somalia.
Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia are ‘contributing countries’ which have sent troops to pacify war-torn Somalia.
The other African country that has sent troops to Somalia is Burundi, but the country’s president Pierre Nkurunziza recently came under fire from the US president, who castigated the events that preceded Nkurunziza’s recent return to power after a controversial election.
