“Don’t Show Our Visitors Gloomy Faces, At least Smile”- Museveni Minister Tells Ugandans


Uganda is set to take center stage on the global platform as it hosts two crucial summits, the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the G77+China Summit, with over 100 countries in attendance. The Munyonyo Convention Centre will play host to these prestigious events, attracting more than 5000 delegates from around the world.

The influx of international visitors presents an opportunity for Uganda to showcase its famed hospitality, a characteristic that has long defined its people. Recognized for their warm welcome and friendliness, Ugandans have earned the country the moniker "The Pearl of Africa," a term coined by Winston Churchill in 1908 to capture Uganda's beauty, diversity, and natural wealth.

As the capital city, Kampala, prepares to accommodate the delegates, Information Minister Dr. Chris Baryomunsi has called upon Ugandans to embody the nation's welcoming spirit. Despite facing challenges, he urged residents along the routes frequented by the visitors to wear smiles and exude positivity.

"We request all Ugandans to work together, we welcome our visitors, put aside what is bothering us aside and put on a smile and welcome the visitors because they will go back when they are impressed. These are visitors for us as Ugandans," emphasized Baryomunsi.

The summits not only provide a platform for diplomatic engagements but also offer an opportunity for Uganda to showcase its cultural richness, tourist attractions, and the vibrant spirit of its people. By fostering a positive and hospitable atmosphere, Uganda aims to leave a lasting impression on the international stage.

As the country welcomes guests from across the globe, the call for unity and warmth resonates, emphasizing the collective effort needed to ensure a successful and memorable experience for all participants. With eyes on Uganda, the nation stands poised to shine in the global spotlight during these momentous summits.
