The Senior Presidential Advisor for Special Operations and Commander Land Forces Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba joined Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta for a visit o the Naivasha Inland Container Depot (ICD).
Gen Kainerugaba tweeted Thursday morning thanking the Kenyan president for inviting him, noting that a strong East Africa is a necessity.
"I thank my great big brother, President Uhuru Kenyatta, for inviting me to my second home Kenya, to join him in the inauguration of the Inland Container Depot in Naivasha. A strong East Africa is the only way to go!" Gen Kainerugaba said in the tweet.
President Kenyatta and his Ugandan guest and other high-ranking Kenyan officials observed the transshipment of container cargo from the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to the Meter Gauge Railway (MGR) and took a train ride from Naivasha to Longonot during his visit to the ICD.
This is the second time Gen Kainerugaba is visiting his friend in less than three months. In September last year, Gen Kainerugaba paid a courtesy call on President Kenyatta as he returned from his working trip in Somalia.
"I consider him my elder and an inspirational and great leader in Africa," Gen Kainerugaba said of the Kenyan president then.
Meanwhile, while speaking to people who had gathered to greet him, the Kenyan leader pleaded for peace and tranquillity as the country prepares for the upcoming elections, citing national unity as one of the reasons for his ‘handshake’ with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
"We are finishing these projects as soon as possible to make life easy for Kenyans. Let us remain peaceful and loving to each other,” Kenyatta stated.
