Structural realism theory assumes power is the most important factor that states use to match national interests. The study undertook a mixed research approach that was both qualitative and quantitative where information about the respondents was quantified to ease analysis of data. The findings of the study highlighted the reality that through the relations Uganda has with Egypt, Great economic growth that has led to Uganda being one of Egypt’s main exporters in the region whereas military strength has been enhanced.
