President Yoweri Museveni today has mourned Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro who died yesterday at the age of 90.
In a media statement, Museveni said Uganda, Africa and the world have lost a very honourable, loyal and reliable friend/comrade in Fidel Castro. As a leader of the July 26th Movement, he redefined Africa’s path to self rule and eventual independence in the 1960s and 70s by supporting our liberation movements.
“He fervently fought imperialism and provided direction and counsel to majority of liberation movements on the African continent. Fidel Castro was a friend, brother and leader. My sincere condolences to the people of the Republic of Cuba. May his soul rest in peace,” He lamented.
