State draws plan for Netanyahu, 7 presidents visit


The government has released a full programme to be followed during the visit of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Uganda on Monday.

According to Don Wanyama, the Senior Press Secretary at State House,  seven heads of state will come to Uganda for the Monday summit to be addressed by Netanyahu.

“I believe an Israeli embassy in Uganda is one of the things that will come up during‪ ‎Netanyahu in Uganda,” Don suggested.

The celebrations will be commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Entebbe raid.

This will be the first visit of an Israeli prime minister to an African country since 1966.

Netanyahu’s brother Yonatan Netanyahu was killed in the raid in 1976.

Yonata was the head of the Israeli elite force, which flew to Uganda to rescue Israeli hostages held at Entebbe airport by a Palestinian militant group.

President Yoweri Museveni, the host, expects presidents of the neighbouring countries including Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya, South Sudan, Zambia and Ethiopia to attend the July 4, event.
