President Yoweri Museveni has on Tuesday
received a legendary musician Kanda Bongoman who paid a courtesy visit to him
at Kisozi farm in Gomba district.
The London-based artiste who was last in Uganda in 1994 and arrived in the country two days ago, praised President Museveni for the tremendous developments that have taken place in the country.
“I was so surprised.
The country has changed completely; the roads, security, and peace. I really
thank you very much and I have come to greet you and wish you and your family a
happy prosperous new year,” Kanda Bongoman said.
President Museveni, on his part, welcomed Kanda Bongoman to Uganda and informed him that all the changes were possible because of the security and peace that the NRM government ushered into the country.
“Kanda Bongoman tells me that he has personally suffered the plight of instability from his home country, forcing him to go to France when he was 17years, and recently had to relocate from South Africa to the U.K when the fake Africans in South Africa carried out the xenophobic attacks. This is a total shame because the majority of present South Africans originated from Cameroon.”
on the struggle is to work for the bigger market that can accommodate the
surplus products now being produced by the population that has started waking
up to increase agricultural production of maize, milk, sugar, bananas and
factory products that are a glut in the local market.
Museveni, therefore, emphasized the need to have a bigger market in East Africa and Africa for the products that are now in excess.
The President also took pride in the situation in Uganda saying that talk against a fellow African because it is not the way of our culture.
“This is why we need all Africans on board for our next major assignment; to expand our market through economic and political integration.”
