Kenya Presidency said in a statement that Aronda delivered a “special message” to Uhuru from his Ugandan counterpart, Museveni.

Details of the meeting remain unknown.

However, the development comes at a time when Uganda is engaged in the massive registration exercise of its citizens in preparation for issuance of the national identity cards.

It is highly possible Aronda could have travelled to Kenya to assess how Kenya was able to successfully register its people.

It’s only Uganda in East Africa which is still struggling with national identity cards.

Chimp Analysts also believe Museveni could have sent Uganda’s former army commander to meet Uhuru and other senior government officials to discuss the South Sudan conflict.

Uhuru recently said Kenya would not look on idly as genocide takes place in the world’s youngest but war-torn nation.

“During the 20th commemoration of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, I expressed our region’s disappointment at having done little to nothing at the time to end the slaughter of a million innocent human beings in Rwanda by a bloodthirsty cabal,” said Uhuru.

“I also pledged, in the name of Kenya and the region that we would never again allow a similar genocide to happen within our shores. I return to the pledge today because of what is happening in parts of South Sudan, we are outraged and gravely concerned at seeing the killing of hundreds of innocent civilians caught up in the internal conflict of the South Sudan Liberation Movement. We refuse to be witnesses to such atrocities and to remain helpless and hopeless in their wake,” he added.

“We especially reject the possibility that we are creeping into genocide again in our region. We shall not stand by and allow it to happen. We strongly call upon all the Parties to bring their military activities and killing of innocent people to an immediate end and bring to account those involved. Failure to do so is unacceptable and will call for concerted effort by the International Community to do so.”

Aronda is a renowned war strategist with plenty of experience in conflict-prone areas especially Northern Uganda, DRC and South Sudan.

If Uhuru lives up to his promise, we would see Kenya deploying troops in South Sudan.

This would mean Uganda and Kenya conducting joint military operations in South Sudan against Riek Machar’s rebels.
