Ugandans disappointed after US Navy Nuclear Warships mission in Mombasa revealed




The United States decision to deployed a navy ship to the port of Mombasa has been met with both great speculation and awe mostly in Uganda as they expected it was time to remove incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

The other members of the battle group are the nuclear attack submarine USS Jacksonville, guided missile cruiser USS Worden, combat support ship USS Camden, guided missile frigate USS Crommelin and destroyer USS Fletcher, U.S. consular officials said.

This is the first time a U.S. Navy battle group led by a carrier has docked at Mombasa since the USS America and accompanying vessels called in April 1983.

The U.S. military has access to this East African nation’s ports and airfields under an agreement announced by the State Department in June 1980.

The nearly 7,000 crew on the navy vessels are expected to pump more than $2 million into the economy of this tourist center.

U.S. officials estimate each sailor spends around $300 during port calls here.

The vessels also take on fresh fruit and vegetables, water and fuel in Mombasa and pay for laundry service and garbage pickup.

The local business community, hotel proprietors, bar owners and prostitutes generally do a booming business during the fleet visits to Mombasa, also a popular liberty port for sailors of the British, French and other navies.

  1. Let us hope its a tour not war,if war the for what? For me I think they are there to stop Alsabab militia, then that would be great for the world at large

  2. Very stupid news, so what’s your point of view of things, hope you had sense in your news, what’s the mission not the benefits of those war ships landing in Kenya. These are serious matters don’t just write nosense.

  3. Americans should leave us in peace and bobi wine should stop selling the life of Ugandas .we don’t need blood shed here,but Kampala will suffer most any and it will be his own people.
