Uganda’s President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has on behalf of himself and all Ugandans congratulated Joe Biden, the President elect for the United States of America.
“Congratulations and greetings from the people of Uganda. The USA, with its black population of 47.4m people, as well as a large Christian population linked with us by faith, could easily be a natural ally of Uganda and Africa” President Museveni said.
He added that previous American Presidents have already positively used these linkages by putting in place the African Growth and Opportunity Act that has given 6,500 types of African goods, quota & tax-free access to the USA and that Uganda salutes this policy & hope that President Biden maintains it.
He also congratulated the American people on exercising their right by massively voting for the candidates of their choice.
“We therefore congratulate the American People on exercising their right by, massively, voting for the candidates of their choice: President Donald Trump and Vice-President Biden. We congratulate H.E. Joe Biden for winning both the popular vote and the Electoral College” Mr. Museveni added.
Joe Biden won the race to become 46th US president, defeating Donald Trump following a cliff-hanger vote count after Tuesday’s election.
