Mr. Medjomo Coulibaly, Resident Representative
Uganda can surely make it on its own. There are two significant aspects we must address to make all Ugandans’ reach the peak of their aspirations: 1) Leaders who love the country and 2) All Ugandans to take responsibility for their actions. The question on everybody’s’ lips; (young or old, economically disadvantaged or otherwise, formally trained or otherwise) should be ‘‘How can I put this to use today?’
