On Wednesday, at State House Entebbe, President Museveni met and held a discussion with a group of representatives from 53 Jewish organizations based in the United States of America.
He welcomed them to the Pearl of Africa.
He told them Uganda’s position on the Middle East is shaped by the Bible, which places both Israel and Palestine in that part of the world.
“Therefore, we cannot align with a version of history that excludes either of them,” he said.
According to Museveni, African civilisation, based on symbiotic relations amidst a lot of diversity in tribal practices even within a country’s boundaries like Uganda, is a good model that should be emulated in other parts of the world to enhance peace.
“I also interested the group in investment opportunities in Uganda, emphasizing agro- processing, mineral processing, high level manufacturing and specialized services particularly in medicine and tourism.”
The delegation of major Jewish-American Organizations on Thursday morning met Speaker Rebecca Kadaga.
Kadaga urged the delegation to explore investing in Agriculture and Tourism sectors.
She invited the Jewish community to the celebrations of Uganda Martyrs Day and Janan Luwum’s day.
The Presidents of major Jewish-American Organisations are in the country to strengthen ties with Uganda, Israel and the US.
Kadaga announced government proposal to establish a museum in Entebbe, in memory of Yonatan Netanyahu, the young brother to Israel Prime Minister.
Yonatan Netanyahu was killed 40 years ago in Entebbe, leading a commando raid to free Israeli hostages.
