DIPLOMACY

President Yoweri Museveni is due to begin a two-day visit to the Kenyan port city of Mombasa on Wednesday for a number of engagements.

It is being seen as a historic trip for the Ugandan leader.

According to a joint press statement from the foreign affairs ministries of the two nations, a joint ministerial co-operation commission would form the basis of the bilateral engagement between Museveni and his counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta.

Uganda’s delegation led by foreign affairs minister Sam Kutesa is already in Kenya.

The statement indicates that Kutesa and Kenya’s cabinet secretary for foreign affairs, Monica Juma have signed minutes of a joint meeting that agreed to form the Inaugural Joint Permanent Commission for Cooperation (JPCC).

The JPCC will among others enhance cooperation in the areas of trade, lands, defence, internal affairs, agriculture and justice of both countries.

Museveni is expected to tour the Standard Gauge Railway terminal, attend the Kenya-Uganda business forum and also give a public lecture at Kenyatta University.
