List of Presidents who have congratulated Uhuru

Welcome back Mr President.

Despite the harsh treatment and backlash from a section of Kenyans online, Mr Museveni waded in, in the guise of representing the East African heads of state to send a message to Mr Kenyatta.

Mr Museveni is the official head of East African Community heads of state.

“On behalf of the EAC that I chair, I congratulate H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta upon his re-election as President of Kenya in the recent repeat poll,” Mr Museveni’s verified Twitter handle tweeted late Monday.

Mr Pierre Nkurunziza, a Burundian politician who has been President since 2005, followed Mr Museveni’s suit and handed a warm message to Mr Kenyatta whom the IEBC on Tuesday gazetted alongside his deputy William Ruto as President and Deputy President elect respectively.

The one time Chairman of Burundi’s National Council for the Defense of Democracy - Forces for the Defense of Democracy, became the second dignitary to send the message to the Nairobi based head of state.

“I once again congratulate you Brother Uhuru Kenyatta for your election victory. Best wishes from Burundi to you and the people of Kenya,” Mr Nkurunziza tweeted to his 84,000 Twitter followers Tuesday morning.
