This is to present to you the January edition of our monthly e-magazine, The Presidency. The objective of the magazine once again, is to bring the office and residence of the President closer to the citizens and even to the international community actors, for purposes of open, transparent and accountable governance.
In every edition, we try to incorporate the feedback we receive from the readers and also, to make the magazine appealing to all our audiences, balancing both text and pictorial. We also provide information that is both educative and informative.
As is the practice, we bring you His Excellency’s major speech of the month. In this edition, we have annexed the President’s address to the 9th Ministerial level meeting of the African Union Committee of 10 on the reform of the UN Security Council, delivered on the 20th January, 2022, at the Commonwealth Resort, Munyonyo. The committee of 10 includes; Senegal, Uganda, Algeria, Kenya and Zambia. Others are; Congo, Libya, Namibia and Equatorial Guinea.
The President spent most of the month of January at his country home of Rwakitura in Kiruhura District and at his ranch in Kisozi, Gomba District, holding small meetings and tending to his cattle. Later, while commissioning a road in Hoima, the President attributed this long rest to the honest and hardworking Prime Minter, Robinah Nabbanja, who is now steering most the Government work. Other engagements of the President included; commissioning of the Helicopter Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul facility in Nakasongola, National Defence College in Buikwe, etc.
We encourage the citizens to give us their feedback and suggestions about the magazine through our platforms; email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Whatsapp: 0414670288 or through our social media handles; GCICUganda. We also encourage the citizens who have benefited from the different interventions, programmes and projects commissioned by the President to send us their experiences in form of articles. We shall publish them.
