President Yoweri Museveni last evening received and welcomed the Israeli tourists who are in Uganda for a four-day tour of the country.
President Yoweri Museveni and Commander-in-Chief of the Uganda Armed Forces has said that the National Resistance Army (NRA) which later became Uganda People’ Defence Forces (UPDF), has managed to grow from strength to strength in the last 38 years because it was founded on the right ideology that emphasized discipline, patriotism, Pan-Africanism and the socio-economic transformation agenda. He said that the UPDF started by liberating, pacifying and guaranteeing peace and security in the entire country.
President Yoweri Museveni has received a special message from the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Antonio Guteres, appreciating him for his endless efforts towards keeping the East African Region safe.
The message was delivered to the President yesterday at State House, Nakasero, by the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Burundi, Mr. Michael Kafando, who was accompanied by the UN Resident Coordinator in Uganda, Ms. Rose Malango.
On behalf of all Ugandans, I send condolences to the families of the people who died in the accident on Lake Victoria last evening.
According to preliminary information from the security services, this, apparently, was a private, unregistered, unlicensed and maybe uninsured boat.
