The Illegal Ugandan Facebook community is continuing to do the job that the rest who are still in blockade by the UCC could be doing in this Electoral period, attacking everyone who congratulates Museveni upon winning the elections. The latest to fall a victim is the Kenyan President His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta who posted congratulating His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni with a landslide victory. Adding that Kenya and all Kenyans are behind Uganda in the choice they have made.
This however irritated angry Ugandans who are not satisfied with the election results who started abusing him with both factual and vulgar abuses. Very many were scene abusing him in the Ugandan local language “Luganda” a Language that appears so strange to Uhuru Kenyatta that not even Google translator can translate it.
Some Ugandans were ordering him to leave Ugandan issues to Ugandans while others were questioning him if the IGAD, EAC and AU which he was mentioning in his post are supporting vote rigging and someone ruling for over 35 years in this world of democracy. Some few Kenyans also attacked him saying that he should congratulate President Museveni as person but not attributing the congratulatory message to all Kenyans.
Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is the incumbent President and has ruled Uganda for the last 30 years has won the elections with 60.75% and has been extended to rule until 2021 by Ugandans. It should be remembered that in the disputed elections of Kenya in 2007/2008, President Museveni was the first president to congratulate President Kibaki the precursor of Uhuru Kenyatta even when the Kenya world was still fighting and killing each other protesting the win.
Below is what Uhuru Kenyatta posted and some of the replies he got
I am very pleased to congratulate His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni on his re-election as President of the Republic of Uganda. The people of Uganda have spoken, and they have spoken very clearly. We respect their choice of President Museveni.
Kenya values its close friendship with Uganda. That friendship is founded on a common history, a common culture, and common interests. In years past, we have worked closely together for the prosperity and freedom of our nations. We look forward to continuing the work that both our nations have already done, together and in concert with the East African Community, the African Union, and IGAD. We look forward, too, to even closer integration.
I wish President Museveni every success as he serves his nation for another term. He and Uganda can count on my support, and my friendship, as well as that of their brothers and sisters in Kenya.”

We would like to appeal to Ugandans to remain calm, those who were not satisfied with the results to go to the courts of law. Violence will not solve anything but spoil everything.
