Speaking as the Guest of Honor on Friday night, President Yoweri Museveni congratulated the finalists for being involved in activities that promote African Development.
“Rapping is OK. Watching football is OK. But that is entertainment… you must be involved in National Development, like these people you are awarding today,” said H. E. Museveni, whose tradition recitation, Give you Another Rap has given him a new reputation as a musician.
“Youth in America benefit from the ‘big space’ around them. You can travel through all the States on America without needing to purchase another visa. That creates opportunities. And that is what we are trying to do here in Africa.
“So you must target to expand your space. Look at East Africa. Not just Uganda,” the President explained.
