Legendary Congolese music icon Kanda Bongo Man has met President Museveni at his country home in Rwakitura ahead of his performance at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
The President shared photos from their engagement on his social media handles.
I am happy to welcome Kanda Bongo alias (Kanda Bongo Man), to Kisozi this morning. What is important to note is that there wouldn’t be music, business or industry without freedom and security. That is why some of us, abandoned some hobbies to go and fight for freedom. Myself, I enjoyed football and Jim Reeves’ music.
Kanda Bongoman tells me that he has personally suffered the plight of instability from his home country, forcing him to go to France when he was 17years, and recently had to relocate from South Africa to the U.K when the fake Africans in South Africa carried out the xenophobic attacks. This is a total shame because the majority of present South Africans originated from Cameroon.
In Uganda however, nobody can talk against fellow Africans because it is not the way of our culture. This is why we need all Africans on board for our next major assignment; to expand our market through economic and political integration.
