Why Museveni Chose Tanzania Over Kenya for Oil Pipeline

The Ugandan president confessed to being a disciple of Mwalimu Nyerere since 1963, mainly because of his stance against tribalism, patriotism, his support for Africa liberation movement and his dream for the East Africa Federation. Also, President John Magufuli's no-nonsense, walk-the-talk leadership style seems to be another deciding factor.



Deal. President Museveni and his Tanzanian counterpart John Pombe Magufuli sign the East African Crude Oil Pipeline Agreement in Dar es Salaam yesterday. The agreement was an expression of intent to go ahead with the construction of the 1,4445km oil pipeline from Hoima District in western Uganda to the Tanzanian Port of Tanga.
