President Museveni has congratulated his Tanzania counterpart John Pombe Magufuli for winning a second term in office.
“Congratulations to His Excellency John Pombe Magufuli and Chama Cha Mapinduzi Party on the resounding victory in the just-concluded elections,” Museveni said on Saturday.
“Uganda looks forward to working even more closely with you and the people of Tanzania to deepen our social, economic and political ties. Hongera!”
Magufuli beat his opposition rival Tundu Lissu and carried the day with 84% of the total vote.
The election has since been criticised as having been fraudulent and full of intimidation and oppression.
