Is it right for ex-Tanzania PM to endorse President Uhuru?

Absolutely yes! President Uhuru Kenyatta has over the last few years won great admiration for placing Kenya on the international stage.
However, his recent endorsement by former Tanzanian Prime Minister Edward Lowassa during a rally at the Suswa grounds in Narok County is controversial because it was made publicly. Many other foreigners are endorsing him out from the public eye.
This is the first time that a prominent foreigner from a neighbouring country has publicly endorsed a presidential candidate.
The President has laid a strong foundation for the country which will soon begin to benefit all Kenyans and foreigners can see that.
The Jubilee administration has expanded infrastructure to new levels and others admire that. Who would not want to see such development? Many world leaders would want President Kenyatta’s transformative agenda to continue.
They want a progressive nation, devoid of petty politicking. Kenya is on the take-off stage and most progressive global leaders want to see political and economic stability.
I urge all Kenyans of goodwill to give President Uhuru Kenyatta another term to complete the transformative projects he has initiated.
