Museveni to visit Washington in December

President Yoweri Museveni is set to make a trip to the United States of America (USA) five years after his last visit.

Museveni is set to meet his USA counterpart, Joe Biden in Washington DC in November. The pair will discuss among other other issues the security of the African continent amid challenging times such as the unrests in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Museveni’s visit has come under scrutiny by members of the opposition especially the National Unity Platform (NUP) who petitioned the USA portraying Museveni as a human rights violator.

However, according to reports coming from Washington, Biden is willing to give audience to Museveni in order to mitigate the Rwanda-DRC conundrum.

It should be noted that the Chairperson of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Robert Menendez, has been petitioning Biden to withdraw Museveni’s invite after

This however doesn’t seem to have damaged the relationship at least that is how it looks like. United States Representative to the United Nations (UN), Linda Thomas-Greenfield paid a courtesy visit to Museveni and assured him that they still have good relations with him.

Evidently, there is still a strong partnership with the Ugandan president.

The opposition especially NUP is probably yet to react about this. This is especially because they invested a lot of energy in it to ensure it doesn’t actually happen.
