Leaders of the Ugandan community in Qatar and Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora Affairs, H.E. Hajji Abbey Walusimbi, held a lengthy discussion on Monday, September 4, 2023, to develop strategies for improving the community’s well-being and fostering good relations with the host nation.

The interface was against the backdrop of a virtual meeting held last month.

In his remarks, Ambassador Walusimbi reaffirmed H.E. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s commitment toward uplifting the welfare of his ‘Bazzukulu’, abroad, adding that the President has instructed the formation of different Diaspora desks in almost all government institutions, departments, and agencies.

He added that the President is consistently engaging with more of his counterparts to open doors for Ugandans, to seek greener pastures, adding that the Government and the private sector are also working with other countries beyond the Gulf region, to see that more Ugandans access decent jobs, on top of a labour bilateral Agreement, which will next month be signed with Qatar.

Walusimbi implored Ugandans abroad, to learn from the President, by making friends for the country and becoming international salesmen of Uganda, by taking interest in areas where the country needs growth like tourism and Agro processing, among others.

Most importantly, Walusimbi disclosed that he engaged with different officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Internal Affairs and NIRA.
“We know for a fact that everything is being done to address issues of your passports and National IDs, among other challenges. There is an ongoing project to deploy more workers at the different Ugandan missions abroad, to help clear any backlogs in document processing.”
