Ugandans that have been supporting the now US President elect, Donald Trump have commenced celebration of their candidate’s victory and also advised African leaders to start planning for their future.
Moses Bigirwa together with other youths who are currently battling with a court case for illegally campaigning for Trump at the US Embassy, have said the group is in high spirit and ready to hold celebrations at the Embassy.
“Tomorrow (today) we are holding our victory party at the US Embassy, this time not demonstrating but celebrating our victory and the expected change that awaits Africa and Uganda,” Bigirwa told Chimpreports in a phone interview.
Asked whether the celebrations have been admitted by authorities, Bigirwa said that the Embassy is already aware and he expects to be accorded good welcome.
“The Embassy officials are much aware of our victory and our going there, we are now in power and in control. Last time it was them in power and that’s why they arrested us,” Bigirwa said.
“We have been at the forefront of campaigning for Trump because we believe he will solve African problems like our overstayed leaders including our very own here,” he said.
In his congratulatory message to Trump, President Museveni expressed readiness to work with the US’s leader despite early fears that Trump’s victory would kill Uganda- US Trade relations.
Trump has promised that “I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone. All people and all other nations. We will seek common ground, not hostility, partnership, not conflict.”
