President Museveni to invite His French Counterpart for NRM Liberation Day Celebration Next Year


President Yoweri Museveni is set to invite his French counterpart H.E Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron for an official visit to Uganda next year when the country celebrates the NRM Liberation Day.

“I’m going to write to H.E Macron and invite him here to discuss African and World issues, including Europe,” Museveni said.

The President revealed this on Monday while meeting the outgoing French ambassador to Uganda H.E Jules-Armand Aniambossou who met him at State house Entebbe.

In this meeting, Mr. Aniambossou informed the President about his three-year diplomatic tour of duty to Uganda that has come to an end and lauded the cordial relations that exist between the two countries of Uganda and France.

“For the time I have spent here, I discovered Uganda is a very beautiful country, I consider myself somehow like Ugandan and will leave the country as an ambassador. We have done well on our bilateral relations,” he highlighted.

The outgoing French Ambassador also updated the H.E President about the efforts by France to bring peace to Eastern Congo. He added that this was top on agenda during the meeting H.E Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron of France held in Paris, the French Capital with the two Presidents H.E Paul Kagame of Rwanda and H.E Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Tshilombo of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The outgoing ambassador however said a sustainable solution to lasting peace in Eastern Congo cannot be achieved without the involvement of Uganda which has a wealth of experience in solving conflicts in the region.

On hearing this, Museveni said he will have to discuss it with President Macron who seems committed to the peace process in Eastern DRC.

“I would like really to sit down with Mr. Macron and we talk strategically. Europe has nothing to lose if they work well with Africa,” Museveni added.

The fountain of honor also noted that the availability of borders has helped Africa to maintain peace between countries and if anyone wanted to alter them, they should do it peacefully. 

He however asked the Western world to support the East African approach to solving conflicts.

The outgoing French Ambassador also commended Uganda’s vibrant arts, culture, and creative industry saying that government should put more effort into discovering and supporting talent in Uganda which has the potential in fighting unemployment.

“Maybe In about 10 years from now, the creative industry will create more money than oil and People will not have to look for jobs,” H.E Aniambossou noted.

The ambassador also told the president that the Uganda government should also consider having a minister for arts and culture.

Mr. Aniambossou has now headed to Ghana where he will serve his next 3 years as an ambassador of France in the west African country.
