Akon wife: Museveni is a genius, best leader ever
Rozina Negusei, the wife of American rapper and Senegalese businessman Akon, has described President Museveni as “the best leader ever”.
Rozina is in Kampala to promote Uganda’s entertainment industry with a $12m dollar investment package.
After meeting president Museveni, Rozina told this reporter in an exclusive interview that Ugandans will regret when Museveni is no more.
A pan-Africanist herself, Rozina says she was attracted by Uganda’s sustainable peace to come and invest.
She is working closely with East African Partners Managing Director, Isaac Kigozi, and the Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora Affairs, Amb. Abbey Walusimbi.
Rozina meets Museveni
“I was honoured to meet such a genius and a walking library. He called me a daughter. I have a new father now,” she said, excitedly telling her real father back home not to take offence.
Rozina revealed that the president gave her three years’ waiver to bring her family and friends and invest.
“It was an amazing experience. You guys are lucky to have such a leader. Seriously, you won’t realise until he is nolonger here.”
She said Libyans destroyed their own country because the West (Europe and America) told them Col Gaddafi was a dictator and they believed it.
“Look, if the Queen of England is allowed to stay for 500 years…the West is worried about Museveni because he is a strong leader. They would want to come here, destroy your country and steal everything,” she revealed.
Asked what she discussed with the President, Rozina cited agriculture, agro-processing and manufacturing as some of the topics.
“I came here looking for an opportunity. I’m interested in livestock and fruits. Why wait for Indians to come and invest in your own country. We need to wake up and invest as East Africans.”
“I’m a Pan-Africanist as well as my husband and your leader is the only person right now who can bring together Pan-Africanists. Open your eyes, dude.”
She said currently, Uganda is now the biggest refugee hosting country in Africa.
“It’s our job to invest and take Uganda forward. As a Pan-Africanist, I think it’s my responsibility to teach and invest in the youth.”
Rozina who has been given the ambassadorial role of marketing Uganda abroad, cited the need for people from diaspora to open the door and invest in Uganda.
“If we come together, nothing is impossible. We need open communication and work for a better Africa. There is no way Africa can come together if we keep listening to the West blaming our governments and leaders.”
She added: “We have everything here and this is a virgin land. We need to know Africa is for Africans. I’m talking to some investors to come here and invest. Africa is heaven.”
She said Uganda is “the most peaceful, sustainable and fair country in the world”.
