President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has congratulated the newly appointed Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Liz Truss.
Truss replaced Boris Johnson who was forced to resign in July this year after a series of scandals in his government.
“This is to congratulate the Rt. Hon.Truss for being appointed as the new Prime Minister of the UK. After decolonization, we have always had good working relations with the UK and by extension the Commonwealth,” President Museveni said.
Mr.Museveni challenged the newly appointed Prime Minister to emulate his predecessor by supporting investment in Uganda and other Commonwealth countries.
“We therefore, look forward to working closely with Rt. Hon. Liz Truss on the issues of Trade, Investment, Tourism and Anti-terrorism,” Museveni stated.
He further commended his previous working relationship with Ms. Truss especially during Commonwealth engagements and other International forums.
“By coincidence, I had the honour to sit next to and engage with the new Prime Minister whenever her predecessor walked out for side meetings,” He said.
