Uganda High Commission meet the Executive and Organising Members of the Ugandan convention in UK.
The delegation led by Mr. Willy Mutenza, a prominent businessman and community activist in the UK, has met with the Ugandan High Commission in the UK to formally present the Ugandan Convention to be launched 27th August 2011, at Troxy, 490 Commercial Road, Shadwell, London E1 0HX London.
Besides the Ugandan community growing in number, its non-unity, non-patriotism and non-nationalistic approach affects our community’s progress. Very little significant headway is identified in our community in comparison with other communities such as Ghanaian, Nigerians even the Somalians.

Uganda’s High Commissioner in London, Madam Joan Rwabyomere, assured the team of its commitment and support that the Uganda commission will render to this Nobel initiative. She further advised Ugandans in the Diaspora to consolidate resources instead of people constantly forming small groups which sometimes fail to survive another year due to lack of skills and needed resources.
Willy Mutenza said that as much as UCU wants to partner with Uganda High Commission and the government in general, UCU is impartial and has no intention of affiliating with the government at whatever stage due to the fact that its fundamental vision is to serve the interests of Ugandan Diaspora community without compromising with the government.
The High Commission confirmed her attendance.
