The Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora Affairs, Ambassador Hajji Abbey Walusimbi has revealed that Africa can become stronger if the gap between historical African diasporas is bridged.
Amb Walusimbi said this as he met with a team of African-American development partners from the One Million Conscious Movement, led by, Deputy Convener Samuel Lee Burnham, and Lead State organizer, Larry Wells, flanked by Pan-Africanism Advocate, Douglas Majwega.
In his remarks, the Ambassador reiterated H.E. President Museveni’s ideology and movement that encourages the solidarity of all Africans worldwide, based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social, and political progress and aims to “unify and uplift” people of African descent.
He noted that H.E. President Museveni is interested in bridging gaps between historical African diasporas, by inviting them to make Uganda their home and becoming citizens.
In addition, Walusimbi reckoned that, with dual citizenship in Uganda, we would in 10-20 years, build a productive community of African-Americans, to overtake Egypt, South Africa, and Ghana, which could totally transform Uganda’s economy through the transfer of solid skills and expertise.
On his part, Deputy Convener & primary Spokesperson of The One Million Conscious & Conscientious Black Contributors & Voters, Mr SamuelLeeBurnham reckoned that their mission is to push for overall self-sufficiency, protection and uplifting of African diasporas all over the world.
In his words, the Lead State Organizer of the One Million Movement, Larry Wells mentioned that they are coordinating hundreds of Pan-African Americans, who are very passionate about building bridges with the African continent, to actively participate in the social, cultural, and economic development of Africa.
The Senior Correspondent with the African Diaspora News Network, Dauglas Majwega, reminded African diasporas to appreciate their unique rich heritage, identify investment opportunities, and eventually, relocate and invest back home.
