During the televised address on Thursday evening, as the National Resistance Army/Movement (NRA/M) celebrates its 38th victory anniversary, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni commended Ugandans for their hospitality towards the visiting delegates.

Museveni shared that a Russian delegate, a deputy Minister, had informed him that only superpowers could successfully organize such conferences.

While acknowledging that Uganda is still on the path to achieving superpower status, Museveni asserted that the foundation for this achievement has already been laid.

The President highlighted the attendance of 1,918 delegates from 129 countries, including sixteen Presidents, nine Vice Presidents, sixteen Prime Ministers, and seven Special category representatives.

These dignitaries arrived in Uganda via airlines and 32 private jets. Museveni emphasized that these countries represent 80% of the global population, amounting to approximately 6.6 billion people.

“In addition to the immense gathering, let us recognize the infrastructure we have developed, partly for this occasion but also to improve our country’s overall infrastructure. Consider the New Terminal constructed by the UPDF Engineering Brigade and the Conference Centre built by Sudhir’s Company, utilizing government funds,” Museveni stated.

He asserted that there is no task beyond Uganda’s capabilities, emphasising that it is merely a matter of prioritization.

Museveni urged people to acknowledge the progress made in upcountry roads, such as those from Kisoro to Nimule and Busia-Busuunga in Bundibugyo, instead of solely focusing on the potholes in Kampala.

“We possess the capacity to achieve anything without corruption. I have instructed the Engineering Brigade to commence preparations for building the Standard Gauge Railway, rather than solely relying on external assistance,” he declared.

Museveni assured the nation that the government is committed to ensuring the security and well-being of Ugandan citizens, investors, and visitors.

As we commemorate the 38th Anniversary of NRM’s victory, I want to assure everybody, including our visitors and investors, that Uganda will remain a peaceful, secure, and prosperous country,” Said Museveni
