Lumumba Lures indians to invest more in Uganda


NRM Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has urged Indians to take advantage of the prevailing peace and the political stability in Uganda to establish more investments in the country.

Lumumba was this Sunday presiding over the annual ‘HOLI’ celebrations organised by the Rajasthan Association in conjunction with the Indian Association in Uganda. The main event was staged in Kamwokya, Kampala.

“As government we have done our part by providing a conducive atmosphere for peace and provided the infrastructure which u must expedite for more investments in all sectors”, she reminded a mammoth congregation that turned up for the celebrations.

The Secretary General who looked impressed with the day’s exhibited culture, commended the government of India and the Indian community in Uganda for all the investments and the employment opportunities they are offering in Uganda’s economy.

She was happy to note that the event had brought together a congregation of proud celebrants from all religions. ” This demonstrates a true meaning of unity in diversity”, she added.

Holi is commonly termed as PHAGWAH in the Caribbean regions and India. It helps to unite people by bringing the society together and strengthen the secular fabrics of a community.

Members here paint each other with different colours as a sign of love and unity. Lumumba too, wasn’t exceptional as she bowed down to respect the Indian culture by having both her face and the dress painted.

Speaking to journalists after the event, Lumumba said she was humbled by the warm welcome accorded to her by the Indian community and the choice to have her as their chief guest.

The function was also attended the Indian High Commission to Uganda.
