President Museveni pledges support for African Union Development Agency

President Yoweri Museveni, yesterday afternoon participated in the virtual meeting of the 40th Session of the African Union Development Agency (AUDA) with other Heads- of -State and Governments from Africa. The Summit was chaired by the President of Rwanda, H.E Paul Kagame, who is the outgoing Chairperson of the Authority.

President Museveni congratulated H.E Kagame for completing his term of office and thanked the Executive Director of AUDA for making a big report about African Union (AU) development.

President Museveni expressed the need to support AUDA in order for it to achieve its goals.

“This Agency should be funded because it plays a big role in Africa like giving African Countries technical advice on crucial issues, coordinating the implementation of some of the selected crucial regional projects,” the President emphasised.

He said that the mandate of AUDA is good because it helps to promote regional strategic security among African countries.

“I will instruct the people of Uganda to make sure you are funded.”

President Museveni said that AUDA has helped to promote and cement brotherhood among African countries as was the case in the colonial era.

“This donor funding alone is not enough, and it should not be relied upon. I can tell you my country gets more revenue from regional trade than it gets from anywhere else,” he said.
