President Museveni on Friday met Camillo Guevara, the son of the legendary guerrilla fighter and military strategist Ernesto Che Guevara at State House Entebbe.
Camillo Guevara was accompanied by his wife, Rosa Alizo, the Ambassador of Cuba to Uganda, Antonio Pubillones, and first son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
Muhoozi who had earlier met Camillo, said the son of a major figure in the Cuban revolution is in Uganda with his delegation for a tourism tour.
While receiving Camillo in Entebbe, Museveni appreciated the role of the late Che Guevara in the fight to transform Cuba.
“We treasure the memory of your father. He was a great hero. Even when he went to Bolivia, I read a whole account of how he protected his dignity and that of the revolution. Some of his ideas eventually succeeded,” the president is quoted telling Camillo.
Camillo gave Museveni portraits of the late Ernesto Che Guevara, a Cuban shirt, and booklets from the visiting delegation. Museveni also gave Camillo books about the liberation struggle of Uganda.
