A visibly angry Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni apologised to President Uhuru Kenyatta and other dignitaries on Thursday for suffering the indignity of sitting in an auditorium that lacked air conditioning.

The Ugandan head of state made the apology at the ongoing 19th Ordinary Summit of the East African Community Heads of State in Kampala.

“I can see that you are all sweeting and that you are suffering. This is thanks to the poor organisation of the Ugandan group. They are always determined to inconvenience our visitors and I don’t know for what reason.”

“So they bring (brought) you in this squeezed place and then they make sure the air conditioning does not work,” the President said amid giggles from the guests.

Museveni had no kind words to the organizers of the EAC summit and gave them a last warning.

“This is the last time I will tolerate this Ugandan officials who habitually inconvenience our visitors with poor arrangements,” Museveni warned.

“I’m very sorry about this because they are spoiling your working holiday,” he added.

President Kenyatta could not hold back and he kept laughing as the organisers were being given a tongue lashing by their leader.
