The Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, has commended the United States President, Donald Trump over his ‘Shithole’ comment which sparked several reactions, mostly outrage across the world.
The Ugandan president while giving a speech in which he declared his love for the United States President stated that the ‘clearly racist’ comment as described by the world is a true description of Africa and African countries.
Museveni, while speaking during the opening of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) in the Ugandan capital of Kampala said: “America has got one of the best presidents ever.”
He added: “I love Trump because he tells Africans frankly. The Africans need to solve their problems, the Africans are weak.”
The comments made by the Ugandan President, Museveni, however comes in sharp contrast to the apology demands made by the leaders of the African Union over the racist comments made by the US president, although Trump had denied making such comments.
Museveni further stated: “For Africa to be strong and to survive, we need integration to speak with one voice,” adding that there is a need to provide a voice for Africans in the production line.
