Community, Diaspora and Immigration
Hon Sam Engola, Minister of State for Housing.
Transcript from his speech at the 1st Ugandan UK Convention
He started by saying that the opportunity for houses in Uganda is very high. More than one million houses need to built in Uganda at the moment and he appealed to the Diaspora to help the country achieve this target. He also encouraged people to go back home to buy a readymade flat or house, rather than rely on relatives to build a home for them, which they may find will never get done. He listed numerous new built properties for sale that were very affordable for members of the Diaspora and encouraged them to look at various projects of National Housing Corporation (www.nhcc.co.ug).
