President Yoweri Museveni has hailed the Chinese Government on account of their correct focus on supporting infrastructure development in Africa.
Speaking during the China-Africa Roundtable discussion in South Africa chaired by South Africa President Jacob Zuma held at Sandton International Conference, President Museveni noted:
“Unlike some global actors who have been concentrating on using cotton wool to mop up oozing blood from a wound, the Chinese have agreed with us, certainly in Uganda’s case, that to heal the injury, one needs to repair the internal primary systems the blood circulatory system, the nervous system, the digestive system.’’
He added: that electricity, roads, the railways, the ICT backbone are the primary internal systems of a modern economy. I salute the Chinese for Seeing Eye to eye with us on this very crucial point.
Mr. Museveni hailed the relationship between China and Africa, saying that as if by co-ordination, both the Chinese People and the African People, in the last Century, started heroic struggles to regain their sovereignty.
