The Deputy President is currently on a three-day tour of Uganda, hosted by the country’s president Yoweri Museveni. On Tuesday, William Ruto was the main guest at the laying of the foundation stone for a Biological Drugs and mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility at Matuga-Wakiso District.
While speaking at the same event, a source reveals, President Museveni told the DP he will help him fight should he be defeated next year, or if ‘anybody’ attempts to rig him out in the presidential polls.
In Uganda, President Museveni is scheming to be the leader of a proposed East African Federation with the help of DP Ruto if he ascends to the presidency in 2022.
According to a statement issued by the State House Uganda, during the groundbreaking ceremony of the biotech manufacturing facility held in Wakiso, Museveni said African countries need to realize that it is through integration that they can ensure the prosperity of their peoples.
“I am very glad that people are waking up and talking about the East African Federation. This will become a center of gravity. We need the center of gravity,” President Museveni said.
