On 28th March, Jose Jaime Ondo Ndong Bacale, Republic of Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to Uganda, presented his credentials before the President of Uganda, H. E. Yowery Kaguta Museveni.
The ceremony took place in two different locations. The national anthem of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea was heard in Kololo square, in the centre of Kampala, where the Ambassador received military honours. The square is historically significant, as it was the place where Independence was granted to the Republic of Uganda on 9th September 1962.
After inspecting the armed forces, the first Equatorial Guinea Extraordinary Plenipotentiary Ambassador before the Government of Uganda was taken to the Presidential Palace in Entebe, located 42 kilometres from the city of Kampala, where the Ambassador presented his credentials to the President of the Republic of Uganda, H. E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
The meeting took place in the presence of the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Charged with International Cooperation, Ariem Henry Okello, and the conversation revolved around the excellent relations of friendship and cooperation linking the peoples and Governments of Equatorial Guinea and Uganda.
Among the matters covered, the Ugandan Head of State announced the imminent appointment of an Ambassador from Uganda with residence in Malabo. The audience ended with a signature in the Head of State’s visitors’ Book.
