The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni has been left red-faced after he made a bizarre and hilarious speech to mark the 40th anniversary of the Entebbe raid.
He went off-key describing the story of the bible and calling biblical King Herod ‘a very bad gentleman, or something like that.’
On 4 July 1976 Israeli commandos flew into Entebbe airport in Uganda and freed more than 100 passengers who were being held by Palestinian and German kidnappers.
The brother of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was the only commando killed in the raid but dozens of Ugandan soldiers, loyal to the then dictator Idi Amin, were killed.
According to Dailymail, Netanyahu listened attentively as President Museveni began his speech, which appeared badly researched and largely incoherent.
Referring to Netanyahu, the Ugandan leader, who has been in power for 30 years, said: ‘I want to thank him for turning this sad story 40 years ago into yet another instrument of bonding the holy land of Israel-Palestine, with the heartland Uganda in particular, and in general.
‘The sad event, 40 years ago, turned to another bond linking Palestine to Africa. I say this is yet another bond between Africa and Palestine because there were earlier bondage events.’
