Williams Bugeme elected president of Congolese in Uganda

Williams Bugeme


Renowned businessman Williams Bugeme, famously known as Boss Mutoto, has been elected as the President of Congolese residing in the Ugandan Diaspora. In a landmark election held at the Congolese Embassy in Kololo, Bugeme emerged unopposed and secured the vote of confidence from 74 representatives spanning various sectors of the Congolese community in Uganda.

Representatives from diverse backgrounds, including members from both Christian and Muslim faiths, business magnates, corporate leaders, and other esteemed individuals, participated in the election process.

As the newly elected president, Williams Bugeme will take charge of crucial responsibilities including Advocacy and Representation, Diplomatic Engagement, and the promotion of National Identity and Unity among the Congolese diaspora community.

In his address to the press following his election victory, Bugeme expressed his firm commitment to fulfilling the responsibilities entrusted to him. “I am fully aware of the magnitude of work ahead,” Bugeme remarked, “and I am prepared to advocate for the interests and concerns of our diaspora community. This entails ensuring their voices are heard, their needs are addressed, and their inclusion in national policies and decision-making processes.”

Bugeme emphasized the importance of strengthening ties between the homeland and diaspora communities through diplomatic efforts. He outlined plans to foster cultural exchanges, promote investment opportunities, and advocate for the rights of Congolese expatriates in Uganda.

Recognizing the challenges faced by Congolese citizens living abroad, Bugeme stressed the need for providing support and assistance, including access to education, healthcare, and essential services. He pledged to facilitate repatriation or resettlement efforts as required.

Furthermore, Bugeme underscored the significance of promoting National Identity and Unity within the Congolese diaspora. He outlined initiatives to organize cultural events, celebrate national holidays, and encourage active participation in national affairs.

Bugeme’s multifaceted leadership capabilities are well-documented, stemming from his successful ventures in Uganda’s business landscape. As the proprietor of the thriving Boss Mutoto franchise, which includes salons, hospitality establishments such as Chez Boss Mutoto Restaurant in Munyonyo, and the exclusive Cigar Bar, Bugeme has demonstrated exceptional acumen and entrepreneurial prowess.

Moreover, Bugeme’s advocacy extends beyond business realms, as evidenced by his engagement with prominent Ugandan politicians, including Minister for Investment, Anite Ajok, and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, regarding the welfare of the Congolese communities in Uganda. Despite being lauded as a socialite, Bugeme has consistently championed activism, positioning himself as a formidable advocate for social causes.
