The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, last week met a leading UK Conservative Party politician, Mr. Kishan Devani, who is in Uganda to explore trade and tourism opportunities.
Devani, a British of Indian origin, is also in the country to visit his ancestral home, having been born in Namataba, 32kms along the Kampala-Jinja highway.
“We had a meeting of over 100 Ugandans of Asian origin in London; many of them are willing to come and visit. They may not come to stay but to tour the country,” said Devani.
Keshan Devani is a renowned international wealth manager and is the deputy chairman (Finance) of the London Conservative Party.
“There are business and tourism opportunities in Uganda. Many of us feel connected more to Uganda than India where our ancestors come from,” he added.
Kadaga said the good relationship between Uganda and India dates back many years.
She welcomed Mr. Devani, whom she encouraged to visit the ongoing Tourism Expo at Kampala Serena Hotel, and to explore tourism opportunities in the country.
