Cuba VP arrives in Uganda on state visit


The Vice-President of the Council of State of Cuba, Salvador Valdez Meza arrives in Uganda today for a two-day official visit.

Meza will be arriving from Tanzania, his first stop on a five-nation Africa tour aimed at strengthening ties between Cuba and Africa.

His visit comes seven years since President Yoweri Museveni’s visit (2009).

Speaking to NBS TV, the Cuban envoy to Uganda, Antonio Luis, said the visit is aimed at reviving Cuba’s ties with Africa as Havana continues to open up after years of being eclipsed by an embargo.

“Currently, 6 Cuban medical professors are teaching in Mbale. I would like to see that number grow,” Antonio said.
