Museveni Hails Modi’s Election Triumph, Reaffirms Uganda-India Alliance



In a statement released today, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni congratulated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on their decisive victory in the recent national elections.

“On behalf of the government and the people of Uganda, I congratulate His Excellency Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on their victory in the national elections,” President Museveni said on X.

President Museveni highlighted the historical and inspirational connection between Africa and India, noting that India’s independence in 1947 served as a catalyst for African nations to fight for and achieve their own political freedom. “The people of Africa share common aspirations and goals with Indians. When India won her independence in 1947, Africans were inspired to fight and overthrow the yoke of colonialism. Today, all of Africa enjoys political freedom,” he stated.

Museveni underscored the strategic partnership between Uganda and India, emphasizing the shared interests and mutual cooperation that bind the two nations. “We, therefore, recognise India as a strategic ally. The people of India and Uganda share common interests, including the pursuit of peace and prosperity. We will continue working together to ensure the well-being of our citizens,” he affirmed.

This message of congratulations and solidarity comes at a time when both nations are looking to strengthen their bilateral relations and explore new avenues for cooperation in various sectors, including trade, technology, and education.
