When Akon and his wife visited Uganda back in May, they paid a courtesy call on President Museveni.
In the meeting, Akon asked Museveni to avail him land to build a futuristic city in his name like he’s doing in his home country, Senegal.
During the meeting, Akon’s wife, Rosian promised President Museveni to bring investors in Uganda to help boost the country’s economy.
On Thursday, Ms Rozian, fulfilled her promise when she lead a group of investors to meet Mr Museveni.
The investors have interests in roads and other sectors.
Akon’s wife posted after the meeting, “Successful and productive day I couldn’t do this without my partner and brother @mrkigozi thank you @kagutamuseveni for receiving me with open arms #Uganda”.
Mr Isaac Kigozi, director for Trade and Investment in the Office of the President, said the group of investors are part of the initiative to bring back the Ugandan and Black Diaspora Community to invest in the country. He said Ambassador Abbey Walusimbi, senior presidential advisor on diaspora has been spearheading the investment and business promotion drive for Uganda.
President Museveni tasked Mr Kigozi to follow up on Akon and his wife, pledges to invest in Uganda.
