Uganda’s distinguished businessman and Trustee of the Indian Association Uganda Sudhir Ruparelia and the chairman Indian Association Uganda Mohan Rao have applauded President Yoweri Museveni for the stable leadership he has demonstrated during the time he has been president.

The pat on the back came during a meeting between President Museveni and leaders of the Indian Association Uganda. Passing a vote of thanks, Ruparelia thanked President Museveni for ensuring peace and stability in the country.

“On behalf of the entire business community, we thank you the President and the NRM government for the favourable business environment. We commit to supporting you,” said Ruparelia.

Rao thanked President Museveni for supporting the return of Asians (and their properties) to Uganda following their expulsion in 1972 by Idi Amin. “As I often say, our stay in Uganda is characterized by 3Ps. Peace, Profit, and Prosperity,” said Rao.

“Allow me to summarily correlate them as follows: The Peace that was ushered in and is being maintained by the NRM government under your leadership has created a conducive environment for us to run and grow Profitable businesses.”

“These businesses through tax revenues, employment opportunities to Ugandans, and production of quality products in goods and services translate into prosperity for all of us as a nation,” he added.

Rao also commended President Museveni for overseeing the transformation of Uganda and “her people from darkness to light, from turmoil to peace, from lawlessness to democracy, from oppression to freedom, from sectarianism to inclusion and from recession to prosperity.”  

President Museveni commended the Indian community for supporting the industrialization drive in Uganda and its resultant gains.
“Manufacturing has created 700,000 new jobs and yet the whole public service is 480,000 jobs. Manufacturing alone has more jobs than those in public service,” he said.
The President added, “Then when you add the jobs in the services sector, they are 1.3 million plus another 300,000 in ICT sector, we are talking more than two million jobs from non-government, non-agriculture. I have to thank you for this big contribution to our transformation.”
