The afternoon of Sunday August 27th was marked by the signing and reading of a joint communique from Equatorial Guinea and Uganda on the State visit that H. E. Yoweri Museveni has made to our country, and the press conference that the two leaders gave to the media.
The event, which took place in the meeting room at the Hotel Mongomo, began with the signing and reading of a joint communique by the Equatoguinean and Ugandan Foreign Ministers, Agapito Mba Mokuy and Irene Muloni, respectively.
The activities carried out by the Ugandan leader during his four-day stay in Equatorial Guinea, a review of the agreements signed during the visit made by H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo in April, and the need to appoint ambassadors in their respective countries in the near future, were the main matters covered.
Following a reading of the communique, at the press conference the two African statesmen responded to questions from the media regarding the State visit, the first by a Ugandan leader to our country.
The first to respond was H. E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who highlighted the hospitality of the Equatoguinean people and the development of infrastructure in the country, thanks to the good use of natural resources by the Government led by H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
“I feel at home, as Equatorial Guinea and Uganda have similar cultural principles”, stated the President of Uganda.
For his part, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo thanked his counterpart for the visit, and described him as a “Pan-Africanist”. Africa needs figures such as him for its full emancipation”, he underlined.
As this was the first time that Equatorial Guinea has exchanged experiences in matters of energy development with a brother country, the Head of State promised to support Uganda, and asked its Government to oversee the industrialisation process in this brother country.
