• Diamond Platnumz performed at Azimio la Umoja final rally at Karasani
• Yoweri Museveni got into power in 1986 and has ruled Uganda since then
Ugandan media pundits say that Tanzanian music mogul Diamond Platnumz is in the process of working on a Yoweri Kaguta Museveni song.
The news was stirred by renowned Ugandan events promoter Balaam Barugahar. Through his Facebook account, he spilled the beans.
“Thank You Diamond Platinum for the New Classic hit for Mzee Yoweri Kaguta Museveni,” the promoter said.
The reports have signaled a newfound relationship between Chibu Dangote and Museveni. The singer has had a good rapport with different Heads of state and Uganda might feature on the list soon.
Museveni got into power in 1986 and has ruled Uganda since then. He is the longest-serving president of Uganda. Before he took over power, Idi Amin ruled Uganda from 1971 to 1979.
It will be remembered that just before the Kenyan general elections, Diamond Platnumz performed at the Azimio La Umoja's last campaign.
During the campaign, Diamond told former Prime minister Raila Odinga that;
"As the youths, we support you and we believe in your leadership. You are our next president,"
After President-elect William Ruto's win, Diamond send a congratulatory message;
"PONGEZI sana wana Kenya kwa kuhitimisha zoezi la uchaguzi na kumpata rais leo. Sasa hivi tena sio Team Ruto, Wajackoyah ama team Raila Odonga. Ni kwa pamoja kuendeleza maendeleo ya kenya na wana kenya kwa ujumla."
(Congratulations Kenyans for completing the elections process and getting your president. It is no longer about Team Raila, Ruto, and Wajackoya but as one of Kenya to push the country ahead as Kenyans.)
On Monday, the Supreme Court dismissed nine grounds that it had listed for determination in the presidential petition filed by Azimio Coalition Challenging Ruto's win.
The seven-judge bench comprised Koome, Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu, and justices Njoki Ndung’u, Isaac Lenaola, Smokin Wanjala, Mohammed Ibrahim, and William Ouko.
CJ Koome said Ruto was validly elected as president and that he garnered 50 percent plus one vote cast required for one to be announced the winner.
