Kagame, Kiir Yet To Congratulate Tshisekedi Over Election Win

Rwanda’s Paul Kagame, Somalia’s Hassan Shiekh Mohamud and South Sudan’s Salva Kiir remain mum as other East Africa’s Heads of states congratulate their counterpart Felix Tshisekedi who was announced winner of the December 20 elections in a landslide victory of 73% of the vote.

The 60 year old Tshisekedi was declared winner amidst protests from opposition who have vowed to challenge the electoral results. Tshisekedi will now lead the vast war torn country for the next 5 years.

Kenya’s Wlliam Ruto, Tanzania’s Samia Suluhu Hassan, Burundi’s Evariste Ndayishimiye and Uganda’s Museveni have already sent their congratulatory messages, as has the East African Community Secretary General Peter Mutuku Mathuki on behalf of the bloc’s secretariat.
