The meeting held at the EU Ambasodors residence in Kololo last night was led by the EU Head of Delegation Attilio Pacifici, and attended by representatives from EU partner states, the United States Ambassador to Uganda Deborah Malac and Officials from the Judiciary, led by the Chief Justice Bart Katureebe, Justice Minister Otafire Kahinda, and Attorney General William Byaruhanga.
Pacifici said that Uganda had improved a lot on infrastructure development and it is now time to address economic development like labour issues, inflation, energy, environmental issues, and markets among others. He also said Government should focus on issues that include culture, skills development, and social protection among others.
The Resilient teachers, students and education systems in South Sudan and Uganda project, will be spearheaded by Oxfam. It will focus on improved access and completion of safe quality education for learners in the fragile and crisis-affected environment.
Pacifici said EUs intention is to narrow the gap and ensure long lasting peace and security in the region. He said Agriculture specifically deserves more attention since despite the potential; it has not helped to reduce food security.
Museveni says the Great Lakes and the United Nations are supposed to handle the endless man-made crises in Congo, including the occupation of Eastern Congo by terrorists from Uganda, other East African countries, Congo itself, Somalia and the Middle East but this is not the case.
The EU Ambassador had asked Police Chief Kale Kayihura, to explain remarks which he allegedly made during a pass out of the crime preventers from the Sebei region in Kapchorwa District over the weekend.
