Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is coming to Uganda to attend the swearing in ceremony of President Yoweri Museveni come this year.
The Egyptian Ambassador to Uganda H.E. Ahmed Abdalaziz Mostafa revealed this.
Mostafa said that the Egyptian company’s new abattoir in Kampala has a capacity to slaughter 800 animals per day and can hold up to 5,000 animals.
He said that the facility is more modern than all the abattoirs found in Egypt. The Ambassador said this in a meeting with Hon. Oryem Okello, Minister of State of Foreign Affairs in charge of International Affairs, in his office at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Ambassador also revealed that Ugandans will be taught how to look after animals for slaughter.
Located about 32 km north of Kampala, the Egyptian company’s new abattoir will process and package meat, mainly beef, for both local and export markets. The modern facility also has coolers, skinning equipment and a processing plant.
Hon. Oryem Okello assured his guest that there is abundant potential market for the beef in the region. He revealed that in DRC a kilo of fresh beef goes for around 18 dollars. He thanked the Egyptians for the good work.
The Minister expressed his sympathies to the people of Egypt about the hijacked flight on Tuesday. The Ambassador clarified that this was an internal flight flying from Alexandria to Cairo.
The Ambassador revealed that his President will attend the inauguration of the new government in Kampala in May this year.
H.E.Ahmed Abdalaziz Mostafa also congratulated Hon. Oryem for his re-election as Member of Parliament.
