MPIGI – The Vice President of Uganda Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi has urged the Commonwealth Parliamentarians to prioritize Uganda for their holidays.
The VP made the remarks on Wednesday addressing his delegates who had visited Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) Nkozi Campus, the Equator and Maya Nature Resort in Mpigi District.
“You’re in a country with a very nice climate, amazing flora, and fauna, with people that have welcoming faces and hearts. I wish to appreciate your consideration to take off time and see nice places of Uganda like the Equator, Uganda Martyrs Shrine, source of the Nile, to mention but a few,” he said.
Mr. Ssekandi further assured the delegates of the peace and security in the country.
During the delegates’ visit at UMU, The Mawokota South MP John Bosco Lubyayi Seguya encouraged people to conserve the environment through planting trees.
“You should plant at least one tree at your home in a month. By the end of the year, one shall have 12 trees. These ones will help in getting back our lost green natural cover. One by one makes a bundle,” said Seguya
He further urged them to join hands in protecting the environment against global warming, floods, drought and famine.
The CPC is being held under the theme, ‘Adaptation, Engagement and Evolution of Parliaments in a Rapidly Changing Commonwealth’.
