President Yoweri Museveni is in the South African city of Pretoria for a two day SADC Solidarity Conference on Western Sahara. The president arrived on Monday evening.
The 38th Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government of SADC approved the convening of a Conference on Solidarity with the Saharawi people. South Africa and Namibia are co-hosting the SADC Solidarity Conference with Western Sahara.
During the Solidarity Conference, the SADC Heads of State and Government will express the region’s support for decolonization and self-determination for Western Sahara on the basis of the values and principles that have guided the quest for independence throughout Africa.
SADC’s collaboration on and with Western Sahara has been informed by the region’s own decolonisation experiences and the quest for liberation and self-determination.
President Museveni was received at the Lanseria International Airport, VVIP Terminal at 5.30 this afternoon by Hon. Makgabo Mhaule, the minister of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa and Uganda’s High Commissioner to South Africa Amb. Barbara O. Nekesa.
