The President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, has jetted into the country for a private visit.
According to State House officials, during the one-day visit, the Kenyan leader will hold bilateral talks with President Yoweri Museveni at State House, Entebbe.
Kenyatta flew into Uganda following his conclusion of a three-day state visit of South Africa, where he also held bilateral talks with his counterpart, Cyril Ramaphosa.
It is not clear why Kenyatta is in Kampala for a private visit, but what is clear is the fact that the Kenyan President embarked on the planned visits to South Africa and Uganda following the recent visit of the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken.
Prior to the Ugandan visit on Thursday, the President of Kenya had also earlier held private talks with the top leadership of Ethiopia led by the Prime Minister, Dr Abiy Ahmed and the President, Sahle Zewde.
Farouk Kirunda, the deputy press secretary of President Museveni, confirmed Uhuru’s Kampala visit, describing it as “a normal private visit.”
