Gen Katumba in limelight as Uganda, Korea stiffen ties


The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga has appealed to members of the National Assembly of Korea to support economic cooperation between the two countries.

A Korean delegation led by the Chairman of the Korea Scout Parliamentary Association and a member of the South Korea National Assembly, LEE Ju-Young met the Speaker on Monday 15th May, 2017 at Parliament Building.

The team is in Uganda to lobby for Uganda’s support its bid to host the 2023 World Jamboree.

Kadaga said, “I welcome any form of economic cooperation. We want more Korean companies investing in Uganda because the rate of educated but unemployed people is high.”

The Speaker said that there was a huge number of skilled unemployed youth that Korean companies could employ.

She also encouraged Ju-Young to encourage Koreans to come to Uganda for tourism.

“We are blessed with a lot of tourist attractions including; lakes, rivers, mountains and a variety of wild animals that would be of interest to the Korean people,” Kadaga said.

Ju-Young said that the government of Korea was particularly interested in fostering any form of cooperation with Uganda.

He added that the Korea Scout Parliamentary Association was seeking the support of Uganda to win the bid to host the 2023 Scouts World Jamboree.

“We promise to support and sponsor all those who vote for us if we win the bid to host the 2023 World Jamboree,” Ju-Young said.

The Minister of State for Works, Gen. Katumba Wamala, who was heading the team from the Uganda Scouts Association, noted that the team that had been selected to attend the voting process lacked funding to travel to Azerbaijan in October this year.

However, the Speaker promised to lobby funding from the International NGOs that support Scouts to finance the Ugandan team. She further promised to send two MPs to spearhead the team at the voting event.
