President Yoweri Museveni is in Dar er Salaam for the 2nd annual African Leadership Forum.
The forum brought together former Heads of State, leaders from business, government, civil society and academia from across Africa to focus on the leadership challenges facing Africa and how to best mobilize the continent, as a continent.
The forum seeks to achieve a shared understanding and appreciation of the importance of, and challenges and opportunities presented by integrating the continent for the sustainable development and transformation.
At the forum, President Museveni met with former Presidents, Olusegun Mathew Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo of Nigeria, Tanzania’s Benjamin Mkapa, Ghana’s Jerry Rawlings and Malawi’s Bakili Muluzi.
While delivering a keynote address, President Museveni said Africa needs to identify and overcome the obstacles to intra-African interaction so that Africa’s richness is achieved.
“If Africa does not integrate there is no way to sustainably ensure our prosperity.”
He added: “Human Resource is the greatest wealth, if it wasn’t, China would not be a rich country. Its human resource that produces and consumes, minerals do not consume.”
He said Uganda’s approach to managing and controlling HIV/AIDS lauded was one of the most effective national responses in Africa.
