Hon. Issah Katungulu Luyimbaazi, the African Youth Ambassador of the World African Diaspora Union (WADU) has cautioned students and young people to desist from just embracing foreign culture that invades the country.
Hon Luyimbaazi informed students that some bad foreign culture has invaded the country with a motive of eroding our African counterpart.
“Be aware of cultural invasion from foreign cultures that are intended to demolish pure African values,” said,
Adding, “it is high time we educate children to learn their languages at the early stages before enrollment to schools,”
The African Youth Ambassador made these remarks while presiding over the handover ceremony of the newly elected leaders of the Baganda Nkobazambogo Association of Mulago School of Nursing and Midwifery in Kampala.
His message come at a time when Parliament has just passed the Anti-homosexuality Bill, 2023, which recommended a death penalty for individuals found engaging in same sex relationships.
Government has for months been grappling with threats from western culture after the passing of this Bill, with a foreign players threatening to withdraw the support they give to Uganda should the president sign it into law.
Hon. Luyimbaazi urged medical students to be thirsty of knowledge and cultural values as they protect them against invaders who are busy planning Immoralities targeting the youth population and family.
He meanwhile informed students that the world moved away from the previous factors of production to only three important factors that’s, People who are the ready market for services and goods, Technology which is in tools of communication and Time management where he emphasized Youth to focus on their lives through making courageous decisions and managing their social life exclusively

“We have had a good working relationships between the Baganda Nkobazambogo Association and the Cultural Consulate of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Kampala. Iran is a country that priotize culture and development since it has a civilization of more than 10,000 years from the great Persian empire,” he said,
